Winemaker Dinner at Veneto
Veneto Ristorante Italiano owner Marco Stevanoni is Italian and an Italian wine specialist and distributor. So, it’s a rare occurrence when a non-Italian wine makes it onto Veneto’s almost exclusively Italian wine list. When it does, you can bet the farm that it’s a very special wine.
Well, on Tuesday, May 17th, Veneto will host Paso Robles’ Aleksander winery for a special winemakers dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. Here is what Marco had to say about the event: “Aleksander is a world-class boutique wine created by a world-class family, who all have an undisputed commitment to excellence. Located in California’s prosperous wine region of Paso Robles, S&G Estate is a 30-acre property, home to estate-grown grapes and an onsite winery.”
“Aleksander is a red wine blend reminiscent of the great wines of Bordeaux. Centered around Merlot, it has varying degrees of contribution from other classic Bordeaux grapes, depending on the vintage. Contributing to the complexity of the wines are French, Serbian and Eastern European oak barrels in which their White Label wines are aged a minimum of 18 months and Reserves a minimum of 24 months. After bottling, the wine is aged in bottles for a minimum of 10 months prior to release. Both labels are full bodied and aromatic, perfectly balanced with rich, dark fruit and a silky tannin texture.”
“Attendees of this unique Winemaker Dinner will get to know Goran and his two sons, Al, and Sasha — two-time NBA Champion with the LA Lakers. The family’s journey from Slovenia, then Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy — and ultimately to Los Angeles, and Paso Robles, left them all with a great passion for wine, which they’ve crafted into a love that’s become a treasured family business.”
Seats for the Aleksander winemaker dinner at Veneto are $195 per person. Call 801-359-0708 to reserve your spot.
