Nestled in the northwest corner of Piedmont, Roero is a rising star and hidden gem. Join us for a taste of the region’s elegant Nebbiolo’s and refreshing Roero Arneis. The area’s sandy soils create a mineral character truly unique to the area, different from its famous counterparts.
During the hour-long seminar presented by Carlo Deltetto of Deltetto Winery and Aldo Zaninotto of Osteria Langhe we will have a taste of Roero Arneis Spumante, Roero Arneis, Roero, and Roero Riserva (including older vintages.) A true value for any wine list, be one of the first to discover this delicious region. Following the seminar, we will have a wine bar of additional wines to taste (including some seeking representation.)
