Barolo and Barbaresco Side by Side

Barolo and Barbaresco side by side 
with guest speaker Michael Palij, BA, MW 
in conjunction with Hardens
October 8 2019, 7pm
£230 per person

Join Giuseppe, Michael Palij and Peter Harden for this intimate and exclusive dinner to enjoy some of the finest vintages of Barolo and Barbaresco, accompanied by a complementary Piedmontese menu.

Guest speaker Michael Palij qualified as a Master of Wine in 1995 at the age of just 29. His first trip to Italy was as a wine buyer in 1994. He promptly fell in love with both the country and its wines and has visited Italy on more than 100 occasions learning about its history, grape varieties, and terroir. Michael now writes and teaches widely on his specialist subject. He lives in Oxford.

This five-course banquet features wines using the Nebbiolo grape from some of the most historic properties in these two world-famous wine districts, and represent some of the finest wines in the world. The evening will showcase the wines from these emblematic producers from each district side by side, to discover the nuances of their similarities and differences.

We do hope you can join us!
