March was an especially busy and exciting month with Vignaioli! With visits from Stefan Solva of Peter Solva, Federico Scarzello of Scarzello and Annette Hilberg owner of Hilberg Pasquero, we had a packed month of tastings and various events!
A special event was the Famiglia del Amarone lunch at Lidia Bastianich’s Italian eatery, Felidia, where our Begali Amarone MCB 2012 was noted as one of the best.
Annette Hilberg held a informative and fun tasting at Da Claudio Restaurant and enjoyed a beautiful dinner at Il Gattopardo with owner Dino and his wife Linda.
Alto Adige’s own, Stephan Solva, of Peter Solva, celebrated his birthday here in New York City by sharing his excellent wines such as his Gewurztraminer and Amistar Rosso, a blend of red varietals, that are an authentic expression of South Tyrol and emphasize the versatality of this mirco zone.
Federico Scarzello shared the beauty of renowned Scarzello Barolo at Il Posto Accanto and later in the week presented a lecture at Columbia Univeristy on the particularities of Piedmont terroir and the production of Barolo.
A fun-packed and successful month, indeed!
