Often considered the ‘King of Wines’ in Italy, Barolo is a wine of transparency; expressing the qualities of the land and the personalities of the people who make it. Produced entirely from Nebbiolo grapes and grown in the hills above Alba, this wine requires a little patience and a deeper look into its appellations and styles for its secrets to be revealed. I often hear stories of that ‘perfect’ glass or bottle or Barolo, and the frustration in recreating those divine experiences. Look no further!

In this class, we will journey through the winding roads and picturesque communes of Barolo, and visit the major players and methodologies which have kept generations of young winemakers hungry to devote their lives to this single pursuit. I will provide details on production, vintages and the ideal drinking window(s) and conditions for this slightly complicated but profoundly enjoyable wine. So, Nebbiolo lovers and the curious, join me for a deep-dive into the Barolo DOCG and the range of wines found within.

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 ‘Baroli’ that are representative of the communes of Barolo, Verduno, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, and the Monforte d’Alba; as well as styles and vintages which are appropriate to a retrospective-type class.
