When I walk into Cafe Gandolfi every morning at eight o'clock, with the sun slanting through the big windows, the place is coming alive. Deliveries are arriving: bread, groceries, the fishmonger's van - and everyone is slipping easily into their routine, anticipating the first customer of the day.
The wines of Jean-Luc Colombo
In Bar Gandolfi @7pm on 8th March 2017
We are very honoured to be joined by Jean-Luc Colombo, founder of the Centre Oenologique des Côtes du Rhône. Jean -Luc started to acquire his vineyards in Cornas in 1987 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. He is very much a "hands-on" producer and believes in complete destemming, malolactic fermentation in cask, new oak and high attention towards impeccable cellar conditions. He favours organic viticulture and less filtration before bottling and the success rate of employing these techniques can be measured when enjoying his invariably excellent wines. Our chefs have designed a fabulous menu to compliment some of Jean-Luc’s finest examples, come join us for a fantastic night of food and wine!
