About the Event
Context Wines works with some of the finest artisanal wineries in the world. With a focus on low intervention, we seek out wines we love, from all the great wine regions, particularly Champagne and Piedmont. Each wine in our portfolio speaks of the unique place in which it was grown. Piedmont is one of the greatest wine regions in the world and Nebbiolo is its star grape varietal. Some of the most exciting red wines are being made in this gorgeous area in North West Italy. We’re thrilled to present an array of phenomenal wines from Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. From star young growers, these are some of Piedmont’s most exciting wines.
