CCR Wine-Tasting: Wines from Piemonte - "La Forza di ‘bogia-nen’" - November 22, 2014

Get ready -- the CCR wine-tasting season is about to begin! For our first tasting of the season we are heading to Piemonte (Piedmont) in the north-western part of Italy. We’ll taste a great selection of wines, discover the region and find out why the Piemontese are called ‘bogia-nen’ which comes from the local dialect, close to French, meaning ‘bouge pas’. And as always, we will share a light dinner and enjoy ‘les fonds de bouteilles’ at the end of the tasting.

Each CCR Wine-Tasting session is given in French and Italian (with questions answered in English, too) and focuses on a specific theme relative to Italian wines.

Daniele Maestri, well-known Italian sommelier and a favorite among CCR members for his knowledgeable and lively presentations, will again lead this lecture and wine-tasting. For those interested in ‘wining and dining’, Daniele is one of the editors of “Due Mila Vini” -- a guide to Italian wines produced by the Italian Sommelier Association.
