Bar Rosso Hosts Palmar Vineyards Wine Dinner

Emma Jane-Doody Stetson

On Thursday October 17, Bar Rosso will hold a wine event that marries the wines of Palmaz Vineyards with traditional cuisine from Peidmont, Italy.  The event will highlight the talents of the restaurant’s Chef, Ches Massimo Stecchi, who heralds from the region.  He will prepare five courses that will be accompanied with a complementary wine.

Palmar Vineyards has an interesting story.  It is located in Napa Valley, California.  Henry Hagen first transformed it into a vineyard in 1881 and it went by the name of Cedar Knoll.  He produced many award-winning bottles and marshaled acclaim in the region.  Unfortunately, prohibition brought its Golden Age to an end.  When the Palmaz family purchased it, it was just a disheveled older house on a tract of land.  Today, they are working to restore it to its previous grandeur.

The event costs $95 a person and begins at 6:30pm.  For information on the wines, menu, or to make reservations, you can call 203-388-8640.  To learn more about Bar Rosso, located in Stamford, CT, please visit .
