Olek Bondonio & Real Castello di Verduno come to Australia

This August, Giorgio De Maria of Fun Wines will join forces with the team from Ristorante Real Castello di Verduno and rockstar Barbaresco producer Olek Bondonio, to bring a taste of Piedmont to Australia. With the help of chef extraordinaire Pasi Petanen, the gang will host one lunch and two dinners in both Sydney and Melbourne. This will be a true celebration of traditional Piedmontese cuisine alongside the soulful wines of Barbaresco.

The menu will be curated by Alessandra Buglioni di Monale with help from her cousin Liliana Burlotto, celebrating some of the winter classics from the Ristorante Real Castello di Verduno, including bagna cauda, risotto al Barbaresco, raviole ris e coi, finanziera, bollito misto, tagliata alla Carlo Alberto and zabaione.

The wines will predominantly be Olek’s (Arneis, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Barbaresco and Barbaresco Roncagliette from different vintages ’15, ’11, ’10, ‘09) with a small selection from Olek’s neighbours and friends (Ezio Cerruti, Serafino Rivella, Dr. Giuseppe Cappellano, Cascina Roccalini and Giacomo Anselma).

There will be an exclusive Olek Bondonio wine flight available or a la carte choice for people who prefer to keep it loose.
