Cesare Pio: Veni, Vidi, Vici with Vino

Five-Courses of Culinary Delight at the AYANA Resort & Spa Bali by Chef Jusman So Paired with the Wines of Cesare Pio on Friday, October 28, 2011

(10/21/2011) Tucked away in the northwestern corner of Italy is the province of Piedmont, renowned the world over for its range of Piemonte wines. Using Nebbiolo grapes this region produces Barolo and Barbaresco wines, which have been described by it fans as “drinking velvet.” Other varietals from this region include are Barbera and Dolcetto. Moscato grapes grown in this region produce the sparkling Asti, while Brachetto grapes are employed to make sparkling and sweet wines.

Nestled in this region, the Pio Cesare winery, was founded in 1881 by Cesare Pio. A pioneering wine producer in an area synonymous with the art of making fine wine, Cesare Pio was an adamant proponent of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and in the other great wines of Piemonte.
Centered near the city of Alba, the Pio Cesare winery owns more than 50 hectares of vineyards, located in the most highly rated and better-exposed areas. 

On Friday, October 28, 2011, AYANA Resort and Spa Bali will host another memorable wine evening featuring the wines of the historic Pio Cesare winery. Limited seats are available for a sumptuous five-course menu prepared by Dava’s new Chef de Cuisine, Jusman So.
