A once a year event in London when these two cult wine makers from Piemonte s Barbaresco and Roero come together with Alex and Damiano from Tutto Wines and Primeur s kitchen team.
Olek Bondonio begun making wine here just a few years ago in an old farmhouse ‘La Berchialla’ which had been in the family for 200 years.He used to visit the farmhouse each summer, studying the vineyard workers with intent. A seed was sown and after conquering Italy as a snowboarder, he turned his mind to wine, working in the Langhe and also abroad before returning home to tend to his family’s magical patch of dirt.Olek is lucky enough to work with some of the very best sites in Piemonte and does everything he can to make sure each wine speaks of this wonderful place.
Vineyard work is fantastic, with a real attention-to-detail borne from doing everything himself, while his winemaking exhibits a patience beyond his years.The resulting wines are pure expressions of Piemonte’s heirloom grapes.
Luca Faccenda grew up in the hills of Roero and his family have been making wines in Valfaccenda, a small valley between Canale and Cisterna in Piedmont for many years.Proud of the area and knowing each kink and dip by name, he has no desire to emulate the wines of his more famous neighbours in the nearby Langhe. He is aware that the steep, sandy slopes here have little in common with the rolling, gentle landscape found south of the Tanaro river. The hills he calls home produce wines of a different kind, perfumed and pretty and often charming in their youth.
Luca makes wines that reflect these hills, solo Roero, nothing else.
David Gingell chef owner at Primeur will prepare a Piemonte inspired supper for the occasion.
One ticket includes all food and wine.
