Pittsburgh Wine Festival Eve “Rivetto” Wine Dinner – May 7

Posted on

RivettoEvery year we try to bring you something extra special on the eve of the Pittsburgh Wine Festival.

Please join us on Wednesday, May 7 when a very charismatic, young Winemaker – Enrico Rivetto – presents his world class wines paired with our cuisine!

The Rivetto Family of Alba (Piemonte) has been making outstanding wines since 1902. Enrico, a fourth generation winemaker began working in the fields and the cellar with his father Sergio when he was just a young boy and became passionate about winemaking at a very early age.

The three very high end Rivetto Barolos in the fourth course have received Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast scores of “93” and “94”.

His wines can be found in thirty countries around the world and we are so lucky to have him visiting Pittsburgh. Please join us in giving Enrico a great Pittsburgh welcome and come enjoy his wines and a very entertaining evening! Click here to view the menu.

Best of Italy Wine Dinner – Oct. 1

Posted on

Join us on Friday, October 1, as we welcome back Stan “the Wine Man” Lalic to The Carlton as he presents his next “Best of Italy” Wine Dinner.  Stan has pulled out all the stops for his first dinner in our new digs!

All of the wines for this evening are Tre Bicchieri Award Winning Wines – comparable to a 95+ rated Wine in the United States!  Less than 1% of all Italian Wines rated ever receive this designation – so these are truly the best of “the best!”  Friday evening dinners with Stan are a tradition that we hope will continue at The Carlton for many years to come!
