Grab your passport and join us as we tour the cuisine and wines of Piedmont at our second Passport to Italy Wine Dinner on Monday, February 26th. The Piedmont region is located in the foothills of the Alps forming its border with France and Switzerland. The presence of the Alps gives this largely hilly region a hot growing season and a long autumn, providing ideal growing conditions for the late-ripening Nebbiolo grape. Piedmont is dominated by two black grapes, Nebbiolo and Barbera, and one white grape, Moscato. The cuisine of the region is rich and savory, matching it’s tannin-heavy Nebbiolo wines.
The event will begin at 6:30pm with a refreshing reception wine and light appetizer.
Bagna Cauda with Raw Vegetables
*Bagna Cauda is a staple of the region. Once upon a time this romantic delicacy kicked off Piemontese meals. The olive oil-based anchovy and garlic fondue is served over an open flame to keep it warm throughout the meal. In Piemontese bagna cauda means “hot bath”.
