Festa del Barolo 2017 31st July to 6th August 2017

Festa del Barolo is a seven day event hosted by a collective of Australia’s most important importers of Italian wine. Over the course of five dinners we will highlight each of the most significant communes of this unique region. Starting on a Monday with La Morra and culminating with Serralunga on Friday, each night a restaurant will be cooking traditional fare of the region matched to a bracket of wines from the relevant commune.

Each dinner will begin with a bracket of either Rosato, Barbera and Nebbiolo from Piedmont before we head into two brackets of three Barolos. The first bracket of three will showcase current vintages, in particular the 2013 vintage which has been heralded as one of the great vintages in the last thirty years. The second bracket of three Barolos will feature older vintages from many iconic producers.

The Festa will feature a who’s-who of producers including Altare, Scavino, Mascarello, Fantino, Manzone, Veglio, Vajra and too many more to mention. Bookings are being taken per night direct with each restaurant.
