United Cellars Tasting Room
Nebbiolo has proven itself over the past few years as one of the most intriguing and beguiling grape varieties available. Often referred to as Italy’s Burgundy, the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco (as well as several cheaper wines from the surrounding hillsides!) have captured the globe’s attention, creating a fascination, and in some cases obsession very similar to those who label themselves “Pinotphiles”.
At this event we will be talking and tasting through what all the fuss is about. We have a container of wine arriving from Italy full to the brim with Italian Nebbiolo of all flavours, qualities and price points, however we’ll also rope in several local friends to show us how they have also been bitten by the Nebbiolo bug and what it looks like through a New World lens.
Our host for the evening will be a man who has done all the hard work and study to attain the coveted Master of Wine title, Mr Alistair Cooper MW. Alistair is visiting from England, and has a borderline obsession with Nebbiolo, so is the perfect person to go deep into what makes this variety so very special.
