Silvia Altare

Considered by many to be one of the top winemakers in Barolo, Elio Altare was a true pioneer in bringing the wines of Piedmont to the global wine scene. Although his introduction of modern winemaking techniques in the mid 1970's turned the traditional wines of Barolo upside down, Altare's wines have always captured the elegance and power of true, terroir-focused, Nebbiolo. Now, a new generation of the Altare family is at the helm of grape growing and winemaking, as Elio passed control of the winery to his daughter Silvia, in 2016. Bringing an intense passion and energy for her family's wines, we are honored to host Silvia Altare, as she guides us through some of her top bottlings. Join us for a fantastic evening of history, progress and some of the best of what Barolo has to offer today!
