You know and love Barolo and Barbaresco. It's time to dig deeper into Piedmont with our pal Weston Hoard, aka The Piedmont Guy!

If you haven't dug in to the great wines of Piedmont, you are surely missing out. We are huge fans of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Arneis etc and are VERY happy to talk about them with you.

Now we have an opportunity to deepen our understanding of Piedmont outside the Langhe with our good friend Weston Hoard, AKA wine importer The Piedmont Guy. There is no better person in MN with whom to explore unknown Piedmont wines and appellations. Weston has spent decades working with and studying the wines of Piedmont, even spending several years working in vineyards and cellars!

This will be a truly special event - informative, entertaining and of course, loaded with delicious wines!
