Tre Bicchieri - First the Wine

First the Wine

   I realize Tre Bicchieri is not a bar and does not serve food, unless you count some fruit and cheese. In fact its only open to the trade. Tre Bicchieri means "three glasses." It is the highest award bestowed by Gambero Rosso, on the best wines of Italy. Getting one or two doesn't hurt either. 

Jackie in her element.

   Tonight we are guests of dear friend and Bar Eaters wine consultant, Jackie. She has been "in the business" and is greatly experienced in Italian wine. Despite her refined taste she is down to earth about the stuff. 

Talking wine.

   All the wines we tasted were delicious, naturally some stood out to us. I made notes on all of them but the list is long.

We learned a few new things this evening, thanks to Jackie. We always do.

As far a we are concerned Tre Bicchieri was a huge success!

On to dinner...
