I just got this from Anna Plumb, General Manager at Orso:
I hope you will join us for the upcoming Seghesio Wine Dinner on Wednesday, October 28, at 7:00PM, featuring beautifully crafted Italian style wines produced in Sonoma, California. Space is limited and Chef Rob has created a wonderful menu to pair with these wines. Priced at $65.00 per person, I am confident you will have a great evening.
The Seghesio Story begins in 1886 when Edoardo Seghesio departed his family?s vineyards in Piedmonte, Italy for a new life in America. Like so many immigrants, he was drawn to Northern Sonoma County and the Italian Swiss Colony, to follow his passion for winemaking. In the years preceding Prohibition, the business flourished and the Seghesio Family gained a reputation for quality wine and their generosity toward others getting their start in this fledgling industry.
Upon repeal of Prohibition, the family once again opened the doors of the winery and Seghesio was making a come back. Unfortunately, Edoardo passed away in 1934 leaving the winery and all property to his wife Angela. From then, Angela and her sons, Arthur, Frank and Eugene continued making wines and shipping via the railroad. With their hard-earned knowledge, they added vineyards when they could purchase them without debt. In 1949, they purchased a second winery facility in Healdsburg to enable them to keep up with the growing demand for their wines.
Today, the Seghesio family passionately produces award winning, almost exclusively estate wines, some from those same vineyards Edoardo and Angela first planted in the late 1800s.
