“Solo Nebbiolo!” Autumn Wine Tasting

Fri. 10/10 4-7p in Belmont; Sat. 10/11, 1-5 both stores
It’s autumn, leaves are turning, it’s crisp and cool, and there’s CC cellar grape basket only one thing we want to drink: NEBBIOLO! Join us on Fri. 10/10 in Belmont and Sat. 10/11 in Concord & Belmont to explore different faces of this singular grape. Like Pinot Noir in Burgundy, Nebbiolo transmits the character of the land and climate, and shows its most complete expression in the Langhe, Piedmont’s growing region. Get to know Nebbiolo!
