The Barolos of Cavallotto at Elmwood

  • Vintage Berkeley Elmwood 2113 College Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States

Tipicità. It's a word of highest praise in Italy, reserved for something so perfectly classical in style, it's almost Platonic: the dictionary definition of the thing itself. It's a word that sometimes seems proprietary to the wines of Cavallotto, so often is it used to describe the wines made by one of Barolo's most revered pioneers.

This Friday at Vintage Berkeley Elmwood, from 6-8 PM, we are deeply honored and truly overjoyed to be hosting the man himself: Alfio Cavallotto. We will be pouring through a deep and brain-reconfiguring line-up of his wines, ranging from his affordable Freisa, Barbera, and Dolcetto... to multiple, different cuvées of his Barolos. (These are the very wines that many of us here blame for turning us into the weirdos we are today.) An event not to be missed.

$15 to change your life this Friday night.
