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.)

We look forward to welcoming you on Monday, June 12 to Sepia!
This month we’re focusing on Pocapaglia & Priocca! Two areas of Roero that are quite opposite, but produce delicious styles of the Roero Arneis.
Pocapaglia is located on the inner portion of the Rocce, though its hills are not significantly high compared to some others in the region.
Located in the southwestern portion, Pocapaglia’s soils are dominated by sand with silica and are generally loose & arid with evidence of marine fossils so it comes as no surprise the entire area under vine of the DOCG denomination (11.02ha) is of Roero Arneis. The area produces a fresh and elegant style of Roero Arneis .
- Cantina Tibaldi
- Cascina Palazzo Rosso
- Carignano Andrea
- Dacomo of Dacomo Teresa
- Libra Margherita
- Monchiero Mario
- Panero Stefano
- Tibaldi of Rosso Maria Teresa
Opposite the Pocapaglia, in the northeastern portion of Roero, Priocca is known for steal hills and Pliocene soils imposed with gypsum, limestone, rock, sulphur and other components. There are 36.95ha of the Arneis and 6.98ha of Nebbiolo in the DOCG here and it is known for producing powerful, bold, and full-bodied wines with high alcohol content.
The most famous and important vineyard location is Val del Prete. Other locations worth noting are Madonna delle Grazie and Montaforche.

New York City discovered Piedmont’s Real Roero Tuesday, May 17th with the wines from nearly 20 producers and an in-depth seminar led by Jeffrey Porter, Beverage Director of the B & B Hospitality Group and Tom Hyland, Author of the upcoming book The Wines & Foods of Piedmont with guest speakers Lucrezia Malabaila of Cantina Malabaila and Carlo Deltetto of Deltetto Winery.
The standing-room-only seminar was packed with journalists and sommeliers from some of New York’s top outlets all eager to learn more about the Roero and its Arneis and Nebbiolo wines.
The feedback from the attendees was incredible. Many commented that this was the first time they had ever had the opportunity to have so many of these wines side-by-side and that they learned so much from the tasting.
We are so excited to have brought this great event to New York City!
