October 10th Truffle Festival Celebration: Saturday in Piedmont Wine & Truffle Dinner
Ciao! Yay, with fall comes White Truffle Harvest and the International Alba White Truffle Faire in Alba, Piedmont, and the Faire starts in Alba on October 10th! So we thought it would be fun and appropriate to plan a wine dinner all about truffles in every course paired with the wines from Rocca Giovanni Vineyards that we did not taste in the other Piedmont dinner. Piedmont is home to the king of reds in that region, Barolo, and Rocca Giovanni has a fabulous additional Barolo we will be enjoying along with other wines for the region.
Join us as we welcome back Guest Speaker Gino Tranchero, Italian Family Estates Brand Manager, Monsieur Touton Imports, who has co-hosted many dinners with us. Gino is from a small town outside of Barolo, and he will share with us firsthand knowledge of the wines, foods and culture of the region. He has also arranged for a special treat for our dessert, flown here just for our dinner! So if you love truffles and love to enjoy truffle based foods paired with a fabulous lineup of 4 Piemontese wines, reserve your package today!
For this event, there will be a course prepared by our chef partner Giancarlo from Scossa Restaurant in Easton, and the best beef filets we have ever eaten are being provided by Alfredo from Osteria Alfredo as in previous dinners with filet, you will plate/prepare the easy courses with our recipes and/or plating guidelines. Non-Meat alternatives can be accommodated upon request.
