Fontanafredda Barolo Dinner at Bacchus
Wine lovers take note! You can join Bacchus for a special Barolo wine dinner featuring Fontanafredda Estate & Winery on Thursday, March 2.
The history of Fontanafredda is a noble one. It began in 1858, when Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy, purchased the Fontanafredda estate - a former hunting preserve located in the heart of Piedmont's Langhe region - as a country home. Soon thereafter, he began to produce fine red wines from indigenous grape varieties dolcetto, barbera, nebbiolo and moscato. Since then, Fontanafredda has become the benchmark for wines that deftly balance depth and elegance.
Alberto Frea, the US Ambassador for Fontanafredda will be on hand for the evening. A certified Sommelier Member of the AIS - Sommelier Italian Association, he will share his deep experience as a Barolo expert with you.
