Description

The legendary wines from Piedmont are unmistakably Italian as they combine elegant and power. Wines from the villages of Barolo and Barbaresco will of course be on show while we can discover some rare Whites from the region. Only the truffles are missing…
Here is just an example of how what we could potentially taste together and enjoy!
Please get in touch and enquire about this tasting in order to design the perfect experience according to the special occasion you want to celebrate and your budget.
1- I always like to begin with a refreshing White as Piedmont is home of rare grape varieties:
Timorasso 'Cavallina', Claudio Mariotto, Colli Tortonesi
2- To follow, we can discover the best Dolcetto from Piedmont:
Dolcetto d'Alba 'Coste e Fossati', G. D. Vajra
3- Time to get serious and taste two great Barbarescos:
Produttori di Barbaresco Riserva 'Rabaja'
Bruno Rocca, Barbaresco 'Maria Adelaide'
4- We can then finish by exploring the wines from Barolo:
Oddero, Barolo 'Villero'
Giusseppe Rinaldi, Barolo 'Brunate'
Ettore Germano, Barolo 'Ceretta'
Rare labels from the 60’s might be on show depending on availability and budget…

About the HOMEtainer

My name is Romain, wine buyer, sommelier and wine entertainer in London and America for the last 15 years. I have successively been promoted as Head Sommelier for celebrity chefs such as Martin Blunos (Lygon Arms), the Roux Brothers (Sofitel London) and Marcus Wareing (The Savoy). From 2013 I became the wine director for Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone where I have put together an exclusive and eclectic wine list for the most discerning and valued guests. Meanwhile I was also looking after the wine programmes for Chiltern Firehouse’s sister hotels and restaurants in America such as Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles or Sunset Beach in The Hamptons. Along these years I only had one rule: To make my guests feel at home while bringing them on a fun discovery wine journey. In order to do so and create memorable experiences, I love to revisit the classics, show some iconic wine labels, understand the new trends, explore unknown wine regions and search for the next big thing.
