Located to the north of Barolo is the majestic region of Barbaresco. Often thought of as secondary to its more famous neighbor Barolo, Barbaresco was born of the local growers who championed it success during extraordinary times. Formed by the ideals of the first director of the enology school in Alba and brought to fruition by a handful of prominent families, Barbaresco has proven itself to be age-able and capable of Grand Cru status. Here Nebbiolo sheds its robust exterior to reveal finesse and nuanced fragrance woven into its firm structure. 

In this class, I will take you into the intimate hills of Barbaresco, Nieve and Treiso to taste 9 distinct wines; each reflecting the individual terroirs and winemaking methods which prevail today. We will discuss the climate, geography and soils, while comparing and contrasting the range of different expressions found in each commune. 

This class will be held at Perch Coffee House on 440 Grand Avenue. Metered street parking is available (meters shut off at 6PM) and there is some residential parking in the area. Please leave a little time to find a spot. Doors open at 5:30PM, so feel free to come in and ask for Paul.



Imported Cheese & Salumi, Jams, Breads, Olives, Grissini and other Antipasto items prepared by Chef Alessandro Campitelli and Chef/Baker Kathryn Phelan.



This line-up will feature Barbaresco that are representative of the communes of Barbaresco, Nieve and Treiso; as well as styles and vintages which are appropriate to a retrospective-type class.
