About the Event

Join us Saturday March 19th as we introduce to you to new wines from the Trentino, Piedmont & Valtellina Regions. Come meet Russ Lorber, Importer & Founder, Wide Roots, as we visit these regions with fabulous wines for you to taste.

About the wines:

  • Villa Corniole Muller Thurgau 2020 - 100% Muller Thurgau. Perfect white with freshwater fish or with first courses.
  • Rocca Modero 8 Gocce Rosso 2015 - An 8-Grape Blend that is easy to pair with food; excellent with lasagna, grilled meat and elaborate, spicy courses
  • Pietro Nera Belviso 1380 Valgella Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2018 - 100% Nebbiolo. Soft, harmonious and slightly tannic flavor with a background of wild berries. Great with Pasta, fish, red and white meats, and cheese.

We hope to see you at Simpatico to explore these amazing wines! Cin Cin!

About Russ Lorber: In 2013, I set off on a path of demystifying the wines of Europe–a section of stores and wine lists that I previously avoided. This path rewarded me with an understanding of what wine really is…a centerpiece of gatherings with families and friends; something to facilitate celebration. When visiting family wineries in Europe, I found the experience to be like an invitation to a family gathering, and I admired the passion of the winemakers for their craft. I launched Wide Roots, a wine import/wholesale company based in Baltimore, to bring the essence of this experience to more wine drinkers, hoping to help them in unlocking this world much the same way that I did for myself.  I am certified by Vinitaly International Academy as an Italian Wine Ambassador, have achieved Level 2 with distinction for Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET), and have passed Court of Master Sommeliers Level 1. My prior experience includes operations management, finance, and supply chain.
