Borgogno Giacomo & Figli Wine Dinner – Tuesday 10th January 2017, 7pm at Bow Lane

Borgogno have been making stunning Piedmont wines since 1761 and represent a true expression of traditional Barolo in Piedmont.

We have been stocking Borgogno wines for years and we keep going back for more – why? Their wines, whilst being very traditional – not an oak barrique to be found – speak of where they are grown and made, namely the village of Barolo itself. The wines are unashamedly old school – but not old fashioned – they are pure, lively and what good Piedmont wines should taste like.

Come and join us, along with the head winemaker Andrea Farinetti to explore a range of Borgogno wines – including two single vineyard Barolos and two vintages of their Riserva Barolo.

As usual, our chef will be preparing a sumptuous feast to accompany these wonderful wines from Piedmont.

The wines we will be tasting on the evening are:

Canapes with Langhe Freisa 2014

Wild Mushroom Sformato with Barolo 2012
