A Wine Dinner with Martina Minuto of Moccagatta
Here at Fearrington, we lean towards the classics and the pillars of the wine world. When we found out that one of our favorite Piedmontese producers was going to be in town, we snapped up the chance to host a wine dinner!
The Fearrington Wine Team is very excited to welcome trailblazing winemaker, Martina Minuto of Moccagatta for another magical wine dinner experience at the Fearrington House.
Established in the 1950s by Martina’s grandfather, Moccagatta’s vineyards are situated on the region’s hills and valleys of different altitudes with terroirs which give each vineyard a distinct character. In a region dominated by icons like Angelo Gaja and Produttori del Barbaresco, Moccagatta’s single vineyard wines firmly hold their ground alongside these producers. Vinous called their wines “utterly captivating,” while Wine Spectator described their 2015 Bric Balin as having “a kaleidoscope of flavors” and awarded the wine 97 pts; the same score given to Angelo Gaja’s Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo 2015 at a fraction of the price! To say that Moccagatta’s wines are sleeper gems is pure understatement.
This incredible wine dinner will feature seven courses, wine pairings, and a pre-dinner reception. Since we are so very excited about this dinner, we are offering an Early Bird Price of $225 per person including tax and gratuity until January 20, 2020.
Due to the limited availability of Moccagatta’s wines, we are limiting this dinner to 50 guests. If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas gift this holiday season or simply want to join us for this spectacular evening, snag your tickets now!
