Anyone Up for $650 Wine Dinner in SF???

I admit some wine dinners can be expensive but this one is cool.  I wonder how many will attend.

“A Momentous Tasting With Roberto Conterno”

On March 19th, Roberto Conterno of Giacomo Conterno will join us in San Francisco for a once-in-a-lifetime tasting of his family’s legendary Barolos, spanning three generations of brilliant winemaking. We will travel over time, beginning with a legend-in-the-making, the 2004 Cascina Francia, one of the first great Barolos made entirely by Roberto. We will then explore the fabled career of his father Giovanni–the centerpiece being his celebrated 1978 Monfortino. And finally we will experience the famous 1945 Monfortino made by Roberto’s grandfather Giacomo.In all, we will experience 12 magical Giacomo Conterno Barolos: 6 Monfortinos (1945, 1978, 1979, 1988, 1995, 2000*) and 6 Cascina Francias (1985, 1988, 1989, 1995, 2000, 2004). The 2004 Cascina Francia will be available for sale on the night, however due to the limited quanity available you may wish to purchase this wine in advance in order to guarantee your allocation.

These 12 great wines will be complemented by a lavish four-course dinner at one of San Francisco greatest Italian restaurants, Acquerello, where we have enjoyed many great dinners and tastings in the past. The all-inclusive cost per person of $650 is a veritable bargain compared to the value and rarity of these wines.

Seating is very limited and we expect the demand to be strong, so please let Italian Specialist Floribeth Kennedy know quickly if you’d like to attend.
