Chances are that no matter who you vote for come Election Day you'll have need of a proper glass of wine, and what finer elixir than a Barolo from Piedmont's famed Vietti estate. Join us as we welcome Luca Currado Vietti to the Salon for an insightful look at his family's role in over two centuries of winemaking history in the Piedmont. A reference point for classic Arneis, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, and Moscato, Vietti's vinuous output is recognized as some of the best Italy has to offer. One of Piedmont's new generation of ambassadors to the region, Luca's mission at Vietti is best described in his own words, quoted here from the Wine Spectator, "I want my wines to be excellent quality for the price. It's important that people should not worry about the price of my wines, and that they drink them and enjoy them. We have to excite people with the wines of Piedmont and the wines of Vietti."
Indeed, a wine lover would be quite happy with Vietti's budget friendly Barberas and Dolcetto if stranded on a desert island, as long as they'd never enjoyed the singular pleasure of the estate's Baroli. Attendees of our one night event will enjoy a comprehensive selection of Vietti wines, including a trio of Barolo from the 2007 and 2008 vintages. The full wine line-up is noted below:
2011 Roero Arneis
2010 Dolcetto Tres Vigne
