Save the Date: April 9th Chique Wine Maker Dinner feat. Mario Roagna of Cascina Val Del Prete: From the sandy soil of the “Valley of the Priests”, emerges a titanic red birthed in the bosom of the Roero hills of Cuneo, Italy. Facing southward, the 27 acres of vines form a natural amphitheater on this family-owned estate. Taking its moniker from the exiled Bishop of Asti, Mario will walk us through the biodynamic cosmogony of the Nebbiolo’s and Roero’s endemic to the Piedmonte Region.

The earth herself also, freely, without the scars of ploughs, untouched by hoes, produced everything from herself. Contented with food that grew without cultivation, they collected mountain strawberries and the fruit of the strawberry tree, wild cherries, blackberries clinging to the tough brambles, and acorns fallen from Jupiter’s spreading oak-tree. Spring was eternal, and gentle breezes caressed with warm air the flowers that grew without being seeded. Then the untilled earth gave of its produce and, without needing renewal, the fields whitened with heavy ears of corn. Sometimes rivers of milk flowed, sometimes streams of nectar, and golden honey trickled from the green holm oak. “ (Ovid Metamorphoses, Book 1 line 100)
