Time: 5:30 PM until 10:30 AM

You're invited to celebrate the unique producer, Fabio Gea, from Piedmont. Crafting his wines in a unique way. Fabio Gea's philosophy, personality, and passion for excellence transmits to his rare wines. Inheriting a hectare of land from his grandfather, Fabio Gea manages his vineyards strictly accordingly to biodynamic principles featuring incredibly small but unparalleled productions.

Seen as a highly experimental and avant-garde wine maker, Fabio Gea makes his own wine aging vessels (amphoras) which he lovingly calls his "dinosaur eggs". These wines are energy-charged, combining distinctive fruit and spice which you will not find anywhere else in the world.

On each of his hand-crafted bottled is written "La Msoira e'L Rastel" which is the title name of his estate. In the dialect of Piedmont this translates to "the sickle and the earth" representing doing things the hard way an the right way. Every detail of his wines are artisans: handmade paper, handcrafted blown bottles, and each bottle is hand-numbered for his limited editions.  

Arrival: 5:30pm, Wednesday, June 29

Cost: $313 per person (includes gratuity, tax is additional)

Seating: Extremely limited. Once this event is sold out, there will be no further availability, as we are limited by the amount of wine.
