Alessandro Veglio Winemakers Dinner
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Alessandro Veglio’s winemakers dinner in Oslo last week. The dinner was hosted at Kulinarisk Akademi at Mathallen, a very nice location in the city of Oslo. As you can see we were seated right by the open kitchen which gave us the unique possibility to see the preparation of the food by the incredible chef Marius (also pictured below),
We were served a multitude of dishes: pasta, risotto, cod, lamb, ragu and dessert. All very good and served beautifully. And the food of course went very well with the wine. Alessandro had brought his dolcetto, barbera, lanhe nebbiolo, barolo classico (2012 and 2009) and the Gattera. I think the Gattera was the favorite of the night, although for me of course way too young. I really enjoyed his Langhe Nebbiolo (as always)!
I have to give a shout out to the wonderful team at Winning Brands, Alessandro’s importer, for organizing such a great event. And of course Kulinarisk Akademi for hosting us. I also have to mention that you can sign up for many cool classes at Kulinarisk Akademi, both wine and food courses. You can check them out here.
Good body of mine. I met him couple of times in Virginia. USA. Cool guy and delicious wine.
