La Festa del Barolo
January 31 - February 2
La Festa del Barolo returns to New York City on Thursday, January 31st through February 2nd. First held in 2011, La Festa del Barolo brings together growers, wine lovers from around world and dozens of top sommeliers for a three-day event that is the ultimate Barolo experience.
The event kicks-off on Thursday, January 31st with the Rare Wine Dinner, which continues their series of historic tastings exploring the great estates of Piedmont. This year’s Rare Wine Dinner, a vertical tasting of Giuseppe Rinaldi’s super-rare Barolo Riserva Brunate from 1978 to 2010, will be held at The Rooftop at The NoMad Hotel.
The Gala Dinner & Charity Auction will be held on Friday, February 1. Fifteen growers will each host a table and present two older vintages from large format bottles while guests are invited to bring wines from their own cellars in what is without question the most extravagant Piedmont BYOB dinner anywhere in the world. The Gala Dinner at Del Posto is the perfect moment for guests to share older bottles or large formats.
The event concludes at Del Posto on Saturday February 2nd with the 2014 Barolo: Surprise, Surprise… tasting in La Festa del Barolo’s traditional masterclass format. Antonio Galloni will moderate a spirited, interactive discussion with fifteen growers. A light lunch follows.
