This tasting is part of a series of "meet the producer" wine events taking place at Cafe Murano Covent Garden. This is a unique opportunity to taste some of the most exciting wines coming out of Italy in the company of the growers themselves. All of the wines are available to buy in the wine shop and many feature on the Cafe Murano wine list in the restaurant next door.
Luca Faccenda and Olek Bondonio are two friends that also happen to be two of the most exciting winemakers in Piedmont today. They have a similar story, both their families are from the region and have spent their lives tending vines. They both travelled the world following their love of wine, working in vineyards all over, gathering experience and perspective, before returning home to look after the family vineyards. They both have a respect for tradition, growing grapes organically and by hand and doing things the old fashioned way in the cellar, producing classic, soulful wines whose elegance belies the relative youth of their maker.
The evening begins with a 6:45pm arrival with welcome drinks, followed by an hour tasting at 7pm with Luca and Olek and a selection of their wines. You will also be entitled to a 10% discount on any purchases in the Pastificio on the day and if you would like to join us for dinner next door afterwards you can enjoy any wine purchased corkage free.
