THE WINE SIDE OF NEW YORK

NEW YORK IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA. AT LEAST THAT’S HOW THE SAYING GOES.

Our adventure in the Big Apple continued on 28 April at BurdiGala, one of New York’s most prestigious Burgundy tastings More than twenty French chateaux presented their finest labels in Manhattan’s most iconic venue, the Rockefeller Centre.

Taking a stroll with the legend

Alberto Tomba is an old friend of ours but also a living monument to the Italian spirit. Alberto is pasta, wine, creativity, likableness, seriousness and frivolousness…there is something in everyone that is at the nth power in Alberto Tomba. But as a skier, Alberto Tomba “the Bomb” is simply synonymous with power and style. Nobody else has expressed both qualities at his level. An energy refined over time but never curbed, which has made him a unique champion and an exceptional standard-bearer. Moreover, it is evident that his charm is increasing over time. Maybe this is why at Borioli he reminds us of Barolo!...

Physique du rôle

Pleasant, unpleasant, introverted, boaster….Gerard Depardieu’s a one-off! He is an icon of French cinema but has worked with all the great masters of Italian cinema. Both beloved and hated by his compatriots, he has always paid his mother country back in its own coin: excessive love and incomprehension. He has always had a good feeling with Italy and loves both French traditional dishes and wines and our cuisine and the large variety and quality of our wines. First of all, Barolo. Therefore, it was no surprise when we had him at Locanda del Pilone not only as a guest but also bustling about in the kitchen, for an unforgettable evening spent with stories, quality food and glasses of the best Barolo Boroli vintages....
