Cascina Roera Wine Tastings

Claudio Rosso and Piero Nebiolo of the Cascina Roera winery in Costigliole d'Asti, Italy will be in the Boston area later this month and you have a few different opportunities to meet them and taste their wines.

First, I previously told you about the special Wine Dinner on January 19 at the Il Capriccio restaurant in Waltham.

Second, you can also attend a Wine Tasting on January 20, from 7pm-8:30pm, at Gordon's Fine Wine & Liquors. You can check out their "flagship" Barberas including: Cardin Barbera d'Asti Superiore, Cardin Riserva Barbera d'Asti Superiore, La Roera Barbera d'Asti, and San Martino Barbera d'Asti Superiore. Jeannie Rogers, owner of Adonna Imports and co-owner of Il Capriccio, will be bringing some wonderful antipasti items to accompany these Piemontese wines. There is a $20 cost for this event.

Third, you can attend a Wine Tasting on January 21, from 6pm-8pm, at Salem Wine Imports. Organically farmed Barbera from two distinct vineyards, San Martino and Cardin plus an IGT Rosso will be available for your sampling pleasure. This event is free. I will likely be at this event so maybe I wil see you there.
