Italian Wine Tasting: Passion for Piedmont
March 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A prestigious and distinctive region for red wines in northwestern Italy, Piedmont is responsible for some of the country’s longest-lived, most sought-after wines. Don’t miss this!
“We Cultivate Dreams”
Based in Treiso, a township that became independent from Barbaresco in 1957, in the heart of the production zone, Pelissero cultivates one of the top grapes in the world: Nebbiolo. This is the grape varietal that more than any other has defined and will continue to define the history of the hills and of national and international wine making. The Pelissero family are the heirs of this land and of this vine. Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto make up about 85% of their production. All the grapes that they use to make their 16 wines come from their 38 hectares of vineyards.
