Meet the Maker Dinner with Simone Scaletta

On February 20th, we will join forces with J’s Bottle Shop for our first Meet the Maker dinner with Piedmontese winemaker, Simone Scaletta. Heirloom’s chef, Garrett MacFalda, will pair 6 wines with family style dishes inspired by the Piedmont region of Italy and sourced from the Piedmont of Georgia. The dinner will be held at Susie Burch’s art studio, and is limited to 18 people. This is a not to be missed event for the wine lover or Italy lover in our community. $65 a person. Reservations required.

About the winemaker: “Simone Scaletta stands tall amongst a generation of new winemakers in Italy’s historic Langhe region. Without any family holdings in Barolo, he boldly ditched his day job in Turin and set out to build a stunning winery in the heart of Monforte d’Alba. For eight years, Simone lived out of a van as he constructed his dream cellar. Hard-driving and zealous, Simone approaches winemaking with an unmistakable joy and gumption. Today, the boundlessly energetic winemaker oversees ten acres of Barbera, Dolcetto, and Nebbiolo in Bussia and Bricco San Pietro. Simone Scaletta bottled his first vintage in 2003, and the sky appears to be the limit for this emerging Barolo house.” -Alejandro Ortiz
