SUN NOV 9 ( Corrected date) Tuscan Wines!

Posted by Gregory Dal Piaz, Oct 20, 2008.

A small group of us have begun to make plans to meet Sunday November 9 to drink and talk about some Sangiovese based Tuscan wines. I will be bringing a few examples from the acclaimed 1990 vintage and I invite you to join us. The venue has yet to be settled but I expect dinner to be $80, tax, tip, everything included. Perhaps less. Bringing something from 1990 is not required, a nice bottle off the shelf of your favorite wine shop made from predominantly Sangiovese would work just fine. Reply here or shoot me a Private Message if you'd like to join in on the action!

Corrected dates!

I'm thinking this is the bottle I'll bring on the 9th. I just tried it today and it was singing.

Super, looks like we're gettin somewhere now. I've got a few others interested but they are waiting until we decide on a venue. Eric has proposed some fine choices but I am not sure they BYOB. I always have a fall-back location in mid-town that is solid. If you guys have a suggestion or idea, please let me know!

There's a little french byow place downtown I've been to twice called Ivo & Lulu (558 Broome St off varick), good reasonably priced french food but tight space, might not work for party of over 4. I'll keep looking...

It's delicious but snug! We'll need a table for 8 at least.

And Ivo & Lulu doesn't take ressies, nor does Tartine (my favorite BYO place!!). There's Grotta del Mare or Ottomanelli's on the UES; I believe GdM charges a corkage fee now though, and Otto's is pretty small too. There's also Ravagh on 1st & 66th, they're great with groups. They have a liquor license but every time I go I bring my own wine and they've never charged me a corkage fee.

Of course, I'm not even sure I'm going to be able to make it. But I'll put in my 2c anyway :)

So Stella I can put you down as a maybe?
We'll find a venue, the real consideration is trying to keep it affordable. I have a very fine Italian place that doesn't charge me corkage, dinner generally runs in the $75 per person range all inclusive with a very nice tip. It's a convenient fall back if we can't find anything else.

Well how does 6:00 sounds to everyone? Earlier usually is better on a Sunday.

As far as location I will make a reservation at Il Corso - west 55th street just east of sixth ave.

The check, all inclusive, is usually $70-$75 per person.

Please let me know if this works for you guys.

Looking forward to it!
