Consider this a warm-up before next week’s Tre Bicchieri event: a wonderful winemaker from the Cilento region of Campania, Bruno De Conciliis, is going to be at ~DELFINA~ this Wednesday for his annual trip to San Francisco. He will be pouring his wines by the glass, carafina, and bottle, including NV “Selim” Spumante, 2008 De Conciliis “Donnaluna” Fiano, 2004 De Conciliis “Antece” Fiano, 2008 De Conciliis “Donnaluna” Aglianico, 2005 De Conciliis “Naima” Aglianico (I had this on my birthday and loved it), and 2004 De Conciliis “Zero” Aglianico.
Delfina will be offering an à la carte menu, including some dishes inspired by the region. Some dishes you may find on the menu: warm octopus salad, fresh-stretched mozzarella with grilled artichokes, gran fritto misto di pesce, Berkshire pork braciole (served in two courses), bistecca alla pizzaiola, and more. You can read more about the wines and Bruno on Delfina’s Facebook page.
NOTE: if you’re in the 650, Bruno will be at ~DONATO ENOTECA~ for a special dinner on February 21st. Executive chef Donato Scotti will create a five-course menu that highlights the Campania region, and De Conciliis will be pouring five of his own vintages. 6pm, $70 per person, excluding tax/gratuity. 1041 Middlefield Road, Redwood City, 650-701-1000.
