Alfio Moriconi, Total Wine's VP of European importing, will be at a free tasting at their Park Road
location from 4 to 7pm on Friday, May 28
. This is a public walk-in event, but sounds like an interesting opportunity for an informal gathering of our group to taste some special wines and speak to the expert who selected them. The Wine Shop Dilworth (2442 Park Road, less than 3 miles from Total Wine) is having their usual free tasting from 5 to 7pm Fri. if you want to stop by there also while in the neighborhood.
Here is Total Wine's write up on their event:For over four decades Alfio Moriconi has been in the wine business, first as a retailer and then as an importer. During his 20 years as a wine importer, he traveled extensively and frequently to Europe to discover the finest wine growers and select the finest wines. Alfio continues to be instrumental in searching out small, family-owned wine producers throughout Europe, with much of his focus on France and Italy.
"Alfio Moriconi Selection" wines (each designated with an "Alfio Moriconi Selection" label) represent over 40 years of Alfio personally tasting thousands of wines to select and present to you nothing but the finest.
