Oliveto is proud to announce a very special event coming up at the end of this month. Thanks to our friend and Oliveto regular John Fox, one of the two principle owners of Premier Cru in Berkeley, Oliveto diners will have the rare opportunity to taste some truly extraordinary wines.

Heralded as a banner year for Bordeaux, the 2009 vintage is considered to be one of the very best by numerous wine critics. John will be offering tastes of seven different 2009 Bordeauxs that have all received accolades as well as the highest ranking of 100 points from Robert Parker:

Pontet-Canet
Smith Haut Lafitte
Ducru Beaucaillou
Cos d’Estournel
Leoville Poyferre
Chateau Clinet
Beausejour

[Duffau Lagarrosse]

Along with this, Chef Rhodehamel will be offering a simple yet elegant companion menu:

First Course
Carpaccio of Beef with Black Truffles

Entree
Duck Breast with sunchokes, broccoli di ciccio, and Bordeaux sugo

Cheese Course
Warm espoisse with roast potato, frisee and mustard vin

$198 (wine + food + tax & gratuity)*

*an additional guest can share in your wine flight at $85 (food + tax + gratuity)

Space is limited, so we encourage interested parties to call as soon as possible for a reservation. At the time of making your reservation, we will take a $120.00, non-refundable deposit, (cost of wine) for each wine tasting.
