TIME: 6:00 PM TO 7:30 PM
WHERE:DELAFIELD

Burgundy.

Maybe you’ve tasted its wines and know their intense power that is sensually coupled with grace and ageability. Or maybe you’ve heard wine geek friends describe experiences with Burgundy that seem to be heaven-sent rather than poured from a bottle. Whatever your experience – for Master Sommeliers and beginning connoisseurs alike – we want to pour enough amazing Burgundy into your glass that it makes you, too, a Burgundy believer.

Yet for as much as we love Burgundy, the Burgundians don’t always make life easy. The labels are a study in confusion. The vineyard designations are complex – there are something like 22,000 of them! The wines can be unexplainably hard in their youth, to the point of consternation. And being all of that – they can be prohibitively expensive, too.

Resolution of these problems is a tall order for any tasting. But I’m sure that together, we can succeed. We’ll proceed in flights of wine. Our opening flight is a discussion of the human factor in Burgundy – how it relates to the labels and purchasing, and how the winemaker can influence the final taste of the wine. In the second flight, we explore the pyramid of label designations through an escalating sequence of wines. And in the final flight, we examine the fine distinctions among minute parcels of vineyards across some of the best communes in the region.

For committed Burgundy lovers and new Burgundy friends alike, this is a tasting not to miss.

Donne di Vino de Grazia – The Waterford Festival of Barolo, Brunello and More

WHEN: SATURDAY, MAY 4
TIME: 12:00 PM TO 4:00 PM
WHERE:MILWAUKEE

ADDRESS: Bacchus Restaurant, 925 Wells St.

COST: $30 per person per tasting

REGISTRATION: Please call 414-765-1166 or email PatrickErdman@bartolottas.com. Credit card required at time of registration. On the night of the tasting, please check in at the restaurant front desk to confirm your attendance.

Join us for Donne di Vino Della de Grazia – Waterford’s celebration of Barolo, Brunello and so many more wines across all of Italy. That’s right, this year our Barolo Festival is expanding to include the entire Boot, and so much more.

But we have something extra special this year. Seven extraordinary women Italian wine makers will be presenting their wines at the Festival. That is correct – the person standing across the table is also the person who made the wine. Is there any better way to learn about Italian wine? I think not.

And of course, we will be tasting a lot of wine. If you are just starting down the path of exploring Italian wine or you already have a cellar full of Brunello from 1947, this tasting is an extravagant tour through some of Italy’s most majestic wines.  In other words, it is not one to miss.

Women to present:

Clelia Romano, Owner, Colli di Lapio, Campagna

Caterina Dei, Owner, Cantine Dei, Tuscany

Gabriella Ferrara, Owner, Benito Ferrara, Campagna

Laura Brunelli, Owner, Gianni Brunelli, Tuscany

Jenny Battaglio, Co-Owner, M. Marengo, Piemonte

Martina Minuto, Winemaker, Moccagatta, Piemonte
