Join us for one of our favorite annual events, a tasting with Martina Molino of Mauro Molino Winery! Martina is Mauro’s daughter and her inviting charm is topped only by her knowledge of these exciting wines. Molino is one of our favorite estates from Barolo, specializing in a modern style of winemaking. We’ll be sampling a whole lineup of Barberas and Barolos! And at table two, try a sparkling and a still white from the Northern Italian label Orsolani.

2016 Mauro Molino Barbera d’Alba

This is lithe and Harmonious, its blackberry and black cherry flavors building to a lingering finish. Accents of violet and spice add interest. Drink now.

2012 Mauro Molino Barbera d’Alba “Le Gattere”

A winery Only wine usually, the Vineyard is situated right next to the families Estate and would be an amazing Barolo Vineyard if their Grandfather hadn’t planted it to Barbera many years ago. Old Vines that pay homage to the families roots in La Morra.
