The GOODS from CinCin

Vancouver, BC | Through her role as wine director of CinCin Ristorante and frequent trips to Verona’s annual VinItaly Expo, Sarah McCauley has had the opportunity to taste the very best wines that Italy has to offer. Every so often, Sarah finds something truly special—a producer “that really captures my attention,” she says.

From the high slopes of Montalcino, Mario and Athena Bollag’s small production Terralsole Winery has steadily developed into one of Tuscany’s top Brunello producers—its Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 placed highly in Wine Spectators’ Top 100. Its unique, high altitude terroir and micro-climate promote a singular expression of Sangiovese.

Throughout the evening, Executive Chef Todd Howard will present a special multi-course menu paired with the wines of the Terralsole portfolio, while winemaker and proprietor, Mario Bollag will offer commentary and insight into his remarkable wines, and the label artwork that he creates.
