Oct 29, 2014 , Bertani , Andrea Lonardi

Wednesday October 29th 

4:30-7:30 

No reservations necessary 

Please join us Wednesday, October 29th, any time between 4:30-7:30pm, when we welcome, Andrea Lonardi, to our wine bar. Andrea is the winemaker for Bertani and will present a truly special flight of vintage Amarone, including a 1964 from their storied library.

 

Bertani is synonymous with Amarone della Valpolicella, having been the first producer, along with Bolla, to commercially release Amarone wines in the late 1950s. Bertani wine production, however, started 100 years earlier in 1857, when brothers, Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani founded the winery in Quinto di Valpantena just north of Verona. Right from the beginning, the Bertani brothers employed all the latest production techniques in wine growing and winemaking and were one of the first producers in Italy to actually bottle and export their production, shipping their wine to the United States by the end of the 19th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, they embarked on a 50 year research project that yielded their first Amarone in 1958. They have been the standard bearer for the wine ever since and we are very fortunate to be able to experience three exceptional examples from the 1964, 1989 and 2006 vintages. 

 

 

Andrea is the perfect expert to guide us through these fascinating wines.
