Every 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.

Hope to see you here at The Carlton for the return of our second Strolling Wine Tasting which will feature vendors pouring over 50 selections accompanied by sumptuous Hors D’Oeuvres. This is a participatory event – you rate the wines and I purchase the top offerings and put them on our list.
Cost is $49 per person for this mini Wine Festival from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Many folks stayed for a light dinner after our inaugural event in September – and all who attended raved and asked that we do it again! April Fools Day is the perfect opportunity to taste so many wines – and get a little foolish! Also, a great night for a downtown sleepover!
