13 Celsius Presents Pelissero Wine Tasting With Giorgio Pelissero says
Some of the most famous and revered wines in the world come from a tiny, fog-laden and mysteriously beautiful area of Northern Italia called Piemonte. Come to 13 on January 19th any time between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. to meet winemaker Giorgio Pelissero and taste some of his magnificent wines. The Pelissero family winery practices only the finest viticultural procedures and is known throughout Piemonte as a fine example of what close attention to detail and meticulous organization and protocol can do to produce great wine.

The Pelissero winery literally started out of a basement. After enology school, Giorgio was faced with the decision to move to the city and work in industry or return home and work as a farmer, just like his father before him. He chose the latter, of course, but decided to turn the basement of their home into a wine cellar and continue to produce estate-grown wines. Working mostly with nebbiolo, barbera and dolcetto, the family has since moved its operation from the basement to a new facility in Treiso, the heart of Barbaresco, but still maintains its artisanal winemaking style and passion. The wines of Pelissero are regarded among the best by consumers and other wine producers around the world. Giorgio is seen as an inspiration among his colleagues for the wines he produces, as they are unlike any other. Join us for a rare opportunity to meet Giorgio as he pours his wines and shares his philosophy on why his wines are so special. As always, no reservations are necessary and we will have one-day-only special pricing on retail bottles to-go.
