As the weather turns unpredictable, what could be better for wine lovers than an exclusive wine dinner? For 5 days only, from June 24-29, Castellana is pulling out all the stops to celebrate Wine Week with exclusive dinners dedicated to the legendary Barolo, famously known as the “King of Wine,” proudly hailing from the Piedmont region. This luxurious gastronomic experience is brought to you by Executive Chef Romeo Morelli and Director of Wine, Alan Tse.

Kicking off the festivities, guests will be welcomed with a glass of Ettore Germano, Alta Langa, Extra Brut 2019, before indulging Chef Romeo’s exquisite 5-course menu (HK$1,580/person): each Piedmontese dish is thoughtfully paired with a selection of the finest Barolo wines to create harmonious flavours.

Warm up your palate with an Aperitivo Dello Chef, a welcome bite using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Then, move on to the classic Escargot, prepared in the traditional Piedmontese style with garlic, anchovies, and parsley. Next up, enjoy the homemade Tagliatelle Fungo e Funghi is served with veal jus, mushrooms, and topped with Tasmanian black truffles. Take your time to savour the change of flavours with the paired Barolo wines. 

For the main course, choose between Chef’s Signature Guinea Fowl (two ways) or the delightful Lobster & Zabaione, featuring whole Brittany blue lobster, savoury zabaione, and topped with Tasmanian black truffle. Finish your meal on a high note with the refreshing, homemade Panna Cotta e Pesca made with Piedmontese peaches.

Barolo, the renowned wine region in Italy’s Piedmont, is famous for producing exceptional red wines from the Nebbiolo grape. Its deep colour, complex aromas of roses and red fruits, and powerful yet elegant structure have earned it the title “King of Wine”. During the wine dinner, you’ll have the chance to sample various styles of Barolo wines, with main courses paired with the outstanding Ettore Germano, Serralunga d’Alba “Cerretta” 2010, and the 1999 Monforte d’Alba “Ginestra-Pajana” from Domenico Clerico.
