Join Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Lynnfield for a wine tour through vintages from some of the best wine growing regions in the world. Host Katie Salinas guides guests through DAOU Vineyards in Paso Robles, California and Pio Cesare in Piemonte, Italy.
DAOU Mountain, a terroir of remarkable equilibrium, has calcareous clay soil comparable to Bordeaux’s Right Bank. The buffered Pacific microclimate is similar to that of tropical Saint Helena island in the Atlantic; a perfect confluence of elements. DAOU Mountain yields some of the darkest, most deeply textured wines in the world. These wines are never acidified, as the ideal level of acidity comes naturally. DAOU Mountain is blessed with ideal conditions for Bordeaux varieties, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pio Cesare has been producing wines for 135 years and through five generations in its ancient cellars in the center of the town of Alba. The Pio Cesare winery was founded in 1881 by Cesare Pio. A successful entrepreneur, he was inspired to produce a small and select quantity of wines from the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco for himself, his family, friends, and customers. Cesare Pio was dedicated to the terroir of the Piedmont region and to producing wines of the highest quality.
The Guest Sommelier events will be held on Wednesday, March 20 and Wednesday, April 3 at 5:00 p.m. Dinner reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 781.944.4810.
