The winery that launched single-vineyard "Cru" Barolo. That "saved" Piemonte's white grape, Arneis, from the threat of extinction. And that, year after year, delivers some of the most highly rated wines in all of Italy and some of the finest values for daily drinking you'll find anywhere in the world. Piemonte's Vietti estate is well worth getting to know!

And there's no better way to get to know the estate than by spending an evening with Elena Currado Vietti, wife and partner of Vietti winemaker Luca Currado. The past few years have been eventful for Elena and Luca as they've taken on investors, purchased new vineyards, and - somehow - kept pushing the quality of their wines higher and higher still!

Elena will share the story of this brilliant Piemonte winery as we pour an exciting selection of wines - including two different vintages of the stunning single vineyard Barolo Cru Ravera.  The tasting will include:

  • Vietti Roero Arneis 2018
  • Vietti Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne 2017
  • Vietti Barbera d'Alba Scarrone Vigne Vecchia 2016
  • Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2015
  • Vietti Barolo Cru Ravera 2015
  • Vietti Barolo Cru Ravera 2014
  • Vietti Moscato Cascinetta 2018

If you love the greatest wines of Italy - or just a great story about a benchmark family winery - you won't want to miss this class.  We'll have some Barbera and Nebbiolo-friendly snacks out to enjoy with the wines and a guaranteed great evening of tasting and sharing.

Reserve your seats on our website now, or call us at 703.356.6500 or email us at wineteam@cbcwine.com.  As always, you'll be charged for your ticket at time of reservation but can cancel for a full refund with notice up to 48 hours before the class. Join us!
