May Wine Dinner

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 at 6:30

This dinner will feature the wines of Mirabella Franciacorta and La Dama. Robert will be working with friend and Italian Wine expert George Schwartz of Kimera Imports to bring some very special wines to the table. Below is a quote about Kimera Imports from their website.

"Kimera is an imaginative dream of George Schwartz, a fantasy to reality wine company, an odyssey amalgamation of 400 months worth of trial and tribulation tasting and discovery, a crystalline synergy where the implausible and dazzling vinous world comes together to reveal a logic, truth and sincere reality.

The genesis was in 2012 after a 35-year fecund track record of retailing, wholesaling, importing and restauranteering. The mindset of the company is to follow purity, typicity, logic of place and price, and to represent super quality wineries across the country.

The book began in Puglia with traditional Negroamaros and new world Primitivos. Then Sicily emerged with Etna Rosso and wondrous Grillo/Zbbibo, and a slant towards Nero d’Avola. One volcano begat another and the wines of Lacrima Christi were evolved on Vesuvius. Verdicchio wealth led to a desire to bring more Garganega of Soave to the fore and build on Corvina, Corvinone and Oseletta.

Recently the catalogue has moved towards Piedmont with acquisitions of Clerico and Altare and Piero Rinaldi. There is a sincere and acute affinity for Nizza Barbera and Colli Tortonesi Barberas, both headed this way. Other foci are Lazio with Grechetto, Cesanese, and Aleatico. Campania is on the horizon with magnificence of Galluccio, Cilento, Sannio, Sorrento and Campi Flegrei.

This is the beginning of a new starburst, the evolution of a life in study and gastronomical passion committed to fly with the conviction of the Kimera."
