An Evening With Christoph Künzli Of Le Piane says
I have been waiting for this night for a very long time. Christoph Künzli of Le Piane in Italy's Boca region has visited Storyteller several times but he has never been in Portland during a weekend. Until now, which means we can finally host him for a tasting! This Friday Christoph will be at Storyteller as we pour wines from his Le Piane estate in the far north of Piedmont, with wines dating back into the 1980s. These wines are made with grapes like Nebbiolo, Croatina and Vespolina and most of the vines are quite old. If you have never tasted a Le Piane wine they are like a cross between Barolo and Burgundy, with many of the same aromas and flavors but with lower alcohol percentages and more acidity.

Christoph has a compelling story to tell as some folks say he almost single-handedly saved this region from extinction and along with the late Alexander Tolf, helped propel these sub-alpine wines back onto the global stage. I'll leave the full story to Christoph this Friday evening as I am sure you too will succumb to his tale telling charms.

There will be a 5.00 tasting fee this Friday and that will be waived with the purchase of any of Christoph's wines. I hope you are able to join us as this is going to be one of our best tastings ever.
