Grand Torino! - Classic Piedmont Wine & Food

Grand Torino! - Classic Piedmont Wine & Food

Italy's gastro mecca emerges from the fog 

Friday, November 10, 2017
7:00 - 9:30pm

Regular price CHF 99.00 Sale

at Steinfels Weinhandel, Pfingstweidstrasse 6, 8005-Zürich

6 classic Piedmontese wines to taste + 4 authentic food pairing courses

So close to Zürich yet so (relatively) undiscovered. The foggy hills of Piedmont shroud some of Italy’s best-kept secrets: land of butter over olive oil, risotto and braised meats... did someone say truffles? Not coincidentally, the Slow Food movement’s birthplace is also arguably Italy's top wine region (shh, don't tell Tuscany!).

Taste an array of local specialty whites, reds and sparklers scarcely grown anywhere else. Classic Old World food-friendly style means they taste better alongside traditional fare: the inimitable vitello tonnato, cheeses, salumi, braised beef, chestnut polenta and more... all leading up to (what else?) a famously expensive and long-lived Barolo. Not to mention our surprise all-time-favorite chocolate dessert pairing ;-)

Spaces limited, join our classic gastro tour! Not a lecture, rather a nice mix of eating, drinking, chatting and learning.

We really enjoyed the evening. You might could show a map of the piemont region and indicate where the wine comes from. Cheers
