When people have out of town guests, where else are they going to bring them? Such is the case with many of you, and as has become clear over the last three or four years the answer is obvious to my wholesalers here in PDX as well. Which is why once again we are thrilled to be able to welcome the export director of Italy’s famed Sella & Mosca winery, Alfonso Gagliano, to VINO this Thursday for a FREE tasting of their incredible, character-filled wines from 5:00-7:00pm. Sella & Mosca is without question on of the foremost producers in all of Italy with a history dating back to the 19th century. Their 1200 acre estate, Il Piani, is located in the northwest corner of the island just inland from the historic port city of Alghero. The best thing about the wines of S&M (which is just fun to write) is the unreal return on your wine drinking dollar.The higher end wines are superb, and the bottles in that $15-ish mid-range simply blow away any similarly priced domestic offerings. Alfonso will bring along some new releases and a couple of old friends, plugs he also represents the whites from the esteemed Tuscan producer Terruzzi & Puthod, and he’ll be showing off their iconic Terre di Tufi bottling. As always it is apparent that this yet another not-to-be-missed evening of awesome Italian delights. Drop in anytime between 5-7 Thursday and we’ll see you here for these…
