Tercero Wines shine at Osteria Bigoli wine dinner

Larry Schaffer, owner/winemaker at Tercero Wines  was in rare form and so were his wines.  The cuisine of Claudio Marchesan showed that great Italian cuisine can work not only with Italian wines but food-friendly California wines as well.  This little osteria hides in plain sight on lower Montana Ave.  Most attendees were new to Osteria Bigoli and most have found their new favorite Italian restaurant.  

Best Wine

Most popular wine of the evening was a toss up between the  2014 Tercero Viognier and the well-aged 2013 Tercero Mouvedre.  Both wines showed well with their food courses and could be expected to last many more years with proper cellaring.

Wine and Food Pairing highlights

The best pairing of the night was a tough call since all the pairings worked well. However, the exquisite 2011 Cuvee Loco paired with the Egg Yolk Tomato Raviolo was a fantastic match

Executive Chef Claudio Marchesan and his culinary team did a great job creating ideal pairings and allowed the wines to complement each course.
