Last week, Il Botolo took part in the first event of the “Stories of Good Cuisine”, a project organized by Alice for Children. It was a special fundraising evening to support the Alice Italian Food Academy. The initiative supports the Italian cooking school in Nairobi by improving on-site facilities and trying to accommodate more and more students eager to learn and train in the field of Italian cuisine.
120 guests attended the evening and had the chance to taste our Barbera d’Asti DOCG 2015, which was professionally served by the students of the Food & Beverage school Carlo Porta in Milan and that was served along with the delicious “cream and speck dumplings” that Sonia prepared during a special live cooking show.
Our wine fit in beautifully with the cordial and lively atmosphere amongst Milan’s entrepreneurial community that came together to support this noble cause.
We at Botolo wish to thank Alice for Children and Sonia’s Factory for giving us this opportunity and we look forward to many future events together!
Last week a select panel of journalists coming from Norway, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, Finland, Poland, and the UK took part in a 3-day tour discovering the wines from Monferrato, with some of the highlights being Grignolino, Ruchè, Barbera d’Asti and Nizza.
Il Botolo is so proud to be amongst the outstanding Italian winemakers that shone at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards!
On June 13 we were pleased to host a delegation of restaurateurs and chefs from Japan at our Estate, “Le Coccole”, who came to visit our vineyards and our cellars.
