St. Supéry Wine Dine Dinner – Nov. 19

Posted on

On Friday, November 19 we welcome Justine Rogale who will host a dinner featuring the wines of  St. Supéry. St. Supéry is a family owned estate winery in the heart of the Napa Valley.  It was born when a young Frenchman named Robert Skalli traveled to California in the early 1980’s and fell in love with the climate and soil in Napa Valley.  Skalli’s family had been in the wine business in the South of France for generations, and Skalli’s dream was improve the quality of the wines produced in France while creating top quality wine in Napa Valley.

Their Napa Valley Winery has been a success and their wines consistently receive critical acclaim.  Four of the wines that we will be savoring all have ratings above “90” points.   Friday evening dinners are always particularly festive!

Joe Barsotti Selections Wine Dinner – Nov. 11

Posted on

Join us Thursday, November 11 for a wine dinner featuring Joe Barsotti selections including two from another “Pittsburgher” who is following his dream of becoming a Napa Valley Winemaker – Nick Floulis!

Born in Pittsburgh, Nick attended Pittsburgh Culinary Institute and was a Manager at the Original Fish Market.  His family owns Zorba on Smithfield Street!  After a stint working at St. Supéry Winery, Nick is now producing a high-end Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley under the label of Pushback!  Nick is considered one of the hot young winemakers in Napa Valley!  In addition to Nick’s delicious wines, we will be sampling a “93” rated Chardonnay from Robert Young and two delicious “organic” Zinfandels from Joe Barsotti’s impressive portfolio!  It will certainly be interesting hearing about Nick’s journey and the challenges he has faced in Napa to produce wines under his own label!
