Vancouver, BC (October 28th, 2011) — Join Cibo’s executive chef Neil Taylor and General Manager David Fert as they welcome Mario Bollag and a tasting of six of his extraordinary wines at an exclusive winemakers dinner on Thursday, November 10, 2011. The three course dinner will be paired with three Brunellos, 1 Syrah, 1 Merlot and 1 Rossoni di Montalcino. The amazing price of just $89.00 per person also includes a complimentary glass of bubbles upon arrival (exclusive of tax and gratuity).
Terralsole, established in 1996 sits on thirty acres of vines. Literally meaning Land Towards the Sun, Terralsole owner Mario Bollag along with his wife Athena, have been producing award winning wines using natural viticulture, organic fertilizers and cover crops. Mario will delight in telling you of how he has been crafting 100% Sangiovese Brunello and how he has cultivated two distinct terroirs in Montalcino using as his palette the blend of soils, vineyard aspects and microclimates.
‘Harmony in the bottle’ is the credo and passion that Mario lives by.
Neil’s menu for the evening includes:
Chicken liver Toscana with pickled walnuts and bruschetta
Pappardelle with duck ragu and pecorino
