we've always had a sneaking suspicion that it's true what they say: italians do it better. so as the next instalment in our ever-popular wine pairing dinner series approaches, we wondered where could be better to venture than the rolling vineyards of northern italy? it is therefore with nothing but the greatest excitement, that we welcome the highly prestigious roccolo grassi to ROKA canary wharf.
established in 1996 by bruno sartori and his two children marco and francesca, roccolo grassi is widely praised for its amarone, valpolicella and soave. the estate combines old and new world techniques by using traditional italian varieties with temperature-controlled technology during the winemaking process. in addition, roccolo grassi are proud to solely use renewable energy and the estate is self-sustaning through the use of solar panels.
the evening itself will be held on our second floor rooftop terrace (weather proofed and warm!!) and will be hosted by our group wine buyer and head sommelier, laura blanchett.
our executive chef, cristian bravaccini, has paired an exquisite 10 plate tasting menu, with 4 of the roccolo grassi's finest wines. you can expect to taste dishes such as black angus sirloin with wasabi ponzu and glazed baby back ribs with cashew nuts.
tickets for this event are £110 per person which includes, wines, paired menu, coffee & tea, water, VAT and service charge.
groups of up to 8 people can be made per reservation.
