Tre Bicchieri Week



The annual Tre Bicchieri tastings of Gambero Rosso take place this week in three U.S. cities: New York, San Francisco and Chicago. The Tre Bicchieri designation (three glasses) is the highest rating awarded to a wine in the magazine’s annual Guide; hence these wines are among the very best in all of Italy. This is a rare opprtunity to try these wines in the same setting; it’s also a marvelous way to take a viticultural tour of the Italian peninsula and get a feel for the pulse of the country’s wine industry.

The New York tasting is being held today (Monday), while the San Francisco event is on Wednesday, the 24th with the Chicago event taking place on Friday, the 26th. If you have not signed up yet (there is a trade and media session as well as one for consumers), go to this link for information on how to enroll.

I will be at the Chicago event on Friday and hope to see you there!
