5/23/2017 -Winemaker Dinner- Featuring Cristiano Garella

TUESDAY, MAY 23RD

WINEMAKER DINNER
WITH CRISTIANO GARELLA

On Tuesday, May 23rd we welcome Alto Piemonte winemaker ‘Wunderkind’ Cristiano Garella. Alto Piemonte was on the verge of extinction through most of the 20th century until winemakers like Cristiano Garella brought it back to life. Cristiano is one of Italy’s youngest and most talented winemakers. He started tasting wine when he was 13 and by 18 bottled his first wine. In 2001, at the age of 21, he became the oenologist and director of La Sella. Today he is a consultant and oenologist for many young estates in Alto Piemonte including Le Pianelle, Colombera & Garella, Boniperti and La Prevostura.

Together with Cristiano we will taste through his wines paired with a four-course menu.
