Piedmont Wine Dinner with Michele Chiarlo Wines at Max Amore 2-26-19

Max Amore in Glastonbury presents a Wine & Food Pairing Dinner featuring the wines of Michele Chiarlo Winery

Special Guest Speaker for the evening

Massimo Galvano

Italian Wine Director – Kobrand Corporation

A STORY OF A FAMILY

The Chiarlo Family home in their vineyards

Since 1956, Michele Chiarlo has been vinifying the essence of Piedmont, loving and developing the most incredible wine region in the world. There are 110 hectares of vineyards between Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi. These crus respect both ecological criteria & the expression of the terroir.

Michele Chiarlo has not abandoned his philosophy. Rigorous selection of the best grapes from only the most reputable growers in the most favored vineyard areas and longer aging in oak and then in bottle prior to release were measures he adopted before the DOC laws. Additionally, from the beginning, Michele Chiarlo has directly managed or personally overseen every aspect in the productions of his wines. Since the early 1990s, his sons, Alberto and Stefano, have also held management roles.  Alberto, the elder, directs Marketing and sales; Stefano, an oenologist by profession, manages vineyard operations and collaborates in production in the cellars.

We are very pleased to present these wines at Max Amore as part of our continued wine dinner series featuring some of the world’s great estates.

Max Lunch Club 2019 Season Dates

“One of the best value food and wine events around, period.”

I am very pleased to announce the dates for our upcoming season of Max Lunch Club events at Max’s Oyster Bar, in West Hartford Center.

For years, we have been presenting great offerings of wine and food combinations in essentially what is a trimmed down wine dinner, but delivered at lunch (and always on a Friday). I try and make sure that we are visited by winery and industry processionals that have an interesting perspective on the topic at hand, and can give our Lunch Club guests some great insight to the wines we are featuring. All of this paired with Chef Bob Peterson’s creations make for a great way to enjoy an afternoon, and a civilized luncheon.

Additionally, I take a lot of professional pleasure and pride in making these selections and pouring the wines that I have hand-selected for each event. Bringing the various guest speakers to our market and introducing them to the Lunch Club members is such a great way to work with wine that I have discovered and enjoy – I hope you agree.

Here is the list of dates that will be filled for the 2019 season, and while all topics have not been filled in quite yet – I am working to get these topics filled shortly, and will be updating as I gets commitments.

As always we ask our guest to arrive at 12:45, and generally plan to start the event at 1pm. We will also be continuing our partnership with the Wise Old Dog wine shop in West Hartford on all of these events.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or comments.

Cheers!

Brian Mitchell, Director of Wine and Beverages for the Max Restaurant Group

January 25th – Rhone Wines through the lens of the Famille Perrin

For this date we venture to the Rhone Valley and taste selections from the Perrin family, owners of Chateau de Beaucastel, perhaps considered to be the premier Chateauneuf-du-Pape estate. The Perrins have been a long-standing favorite of mine, and they continue to develop new wines and regions to show the diversity of the wine regions of southern France. Paul Nerz of Vineyard Brands, the import company responsible for the Perrin wines in the US, will be on hand to present.

Click here to see the full menu.

February 22 – Thom Horsey of Ste. Michelle Estates

Wine Educator Thom Horsey of Ste Michelle Estates pays us a visit and will be presenting wines from the larger portfolio of this top producer. Stay tuned for the specif wines and menu.

March 25 – TBD

April 12th – Matteo Bolla from Valdo Winery – a Perspective on Prosecco

Prosecco is about the hottest wine category going over the past ten years, only surpassed perhaps by Rose (who would have thought?). The Bolla family has been making exceptional Sparkling wines north of Venice since the 1930s, and the current generation has been working hard to make it event better. Matteo Bolla is an exceptional ambassador for the family winery and the region as a whole. See why Prosecco is not just a note wine, but a diverse region with complex wines.

May 17th – TBD

June 14th – TBD

July 12th – Loire Valley from Sancerre to Saumur

This past year I had the pleasure to travel to the Loire and experience some phenomenal wines from regions that are familiar to some, but less well-known to others. For this lunch I will be presenting a selection of wines from top producers I met on my travels.

August 9th – TBD

September 13th – TBD

October 4th – TBD

October 25th – TBD

November 22nd – 6TH Annual Beaujolais Luncheon

This has become an annual favorite, and a lunch that I personally really enjoy. Each year I present a Beaujolais Nouveau from the current release, which is allowed to be released just the day before to the world. This is followed by a selection of top wines from smaller producers that have contributed to the absolute turn-around in everyone’s view of the Beaujolais region. The leader in authentic and pure wines, this is the new frontier of exceptional value and food-friendly wines from France. Chef usually pairs with some classic French dishes, making this all the better for foodies!

Winemaker Dinner with Augusto Boffa of the Pio Cesare Winery in Piemonte, Italy

Max a Mia is Very Pleased to Present

An Italian Wine Dinner Featuring

The Historic Pio Cesare wines of Piemonte

With Special Guest

Mr. Augusto Boffa

Pio Cesare Winery Family Member

Pio Cesare has been producing wines for 135 years and through five generations in its ancient cellars in the center of the town of Alba.

The Pio Cesare winery was founded in 1881, by Cesare Pio. He was a very successful entrepreneur and was inspired to produce a small and select quantity of wines from the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco for himself, his family, friends, and customers. Cesare Pio was dedicated to the terroir of the Piedmont region and to producing wines of the highest quality.

Today, the family members travel extensively to more than 50 countries around the world, echoing what Cesare Pio himself did at the beginning of our history—promoting the name and reputation of the Pio Cesare winery to restaurants, hotels, wine shops and wine lovers worldwide. We are very pleased to welcome fourth generation from Pio Cesare to Max a Mia for this winter wine dinner.

For this dinner we have selected a number of wines from these top estates to feature along with the cuisine of Chef Lundgren.

Ridge Winery Spring Release & Tasting dinner

Last year we asked the question, “Does Ridge matter?” And with a resounding YES, we featured the new releases and some very special cellar wines from Ridge Vineyards in a delightful tasting and dinner combination. The format was enjoyed so much we are hosting the tasting and dinner once again.

In today’s wine world there are many choices.  Since the late 1950s, Ridge Vineyards has been making extraordinary wines in a natural and traditional manner, something many winemakers left but have come back to.  The wines by Ridge Vineyards are different, they are full of flavor, flavor of the land from which they are grown and produced.  This is something that can be lost by younger winemakers, but with the guiding hand of Paul Draper since 1969, Ridge is still more relevant today, than perhaps it has been at any time in its many years. Max Downtown is very pleased to preset

a fabulous tasting & pairing dinner Highlighting the Spring 2018 releases from Ridge Vineyards.

A STORY OF A FAMILY 
The Di Majo Norante winery sits on the estate of the Marquis Norante of Santa Cristina in the region of Molise, along the Adriatic Sea between Puglia and Abruzzo. The cultivation of vines in this area dates back to 500 BC and the estate has been dedicated to growing vines since the 1800s. Founded in 1968, the Di Majo estate cultivates more than 200 acres under vine. In order to ensure consistent, high-quality production for all the estate’s wines, Alessio Di Majo hired renowned oenologist Riccardo Cotarella as a consultant. In addition to producing quality wine at an outstanding value, the Di Majo family is dedicated to practicing environmentally sound agriculture.
