Special Winemaker Dinner With "The Dolcetto King"

Beppe Ca’Viola, AKA “The Dolcetto King,” serves as a consultant for some of the most legendary estates across Italy. And, as it turns out, he’s a talented winemaker himself. ~OTTIMISTA ENOTECA-CAFE~ will be hosting a special dinner with Beppe, showcasing his dolcetto, barbera, and nebbiolo-based wines of the Langhe. And these wines will rock: in 2002, Beppe was named Gambero Rosso’s “Winemaker of the Year” and on the consulting side, in 2008 he had 39 “Tre Bicchieri” estates, including Vietti, Bruno Rocca, Mauro Veglio, Elvio Cogno, Damilano, Silvio Grasso, Euinadi, Michele Chiarlo, Umani Ronchi, Sella & Mosca, and Villa Sparina. To look at the pairings and chef Glen Tinsley’s hearty five-course dinner, take a peek here.
