Barbera - The Work Horse of Piedmont
With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, February begins our Italian Romance Tasting Series. At each Thursday night tasting throughout the month we'll be featuring wines from Italy. For this Thursday's tasting we start with Barbera, the favorite grape of Piedmont winemakers. Barbera produces red wines that are known for their vibrant acidity, fruity aromas, and moderate tannins. They are also known for their deep, ruby color and make an excellent pairing with a large variety of foods, making them an ideal choice for a romantic evening. Come join us as we taste three different Barberas, the wine that Piedmont winemakers drink with dinner.

We'll see you at the tasting table from 6 to 8.
