Truffles Prices Are In

We hate it when we’re shaving $12/gram truffles at our dinners. We’ve long rejected the common $14 to $20/gram approach. It’s not as fun.

But because these dinners are something of an institution, and diners come in ready to have at them, we sell a lot of truffles. And, we can bring the price down.

We’re happy to share the good news: truffles will be a somewhat modest $8 per gram for our Truffle Dinners. You can also purchase them to take home — email us (shelley@oliveto.com) if you are interested!

Pre-Order Aged Wine for Truffle Dinners

We were really blown away by these very well aged wines from our recent Bruno Giacosa dinner. These aged Barolos and Barbarescos are the very best wines to drink with white truffles, as they come from the same region of northern Italy. Delicious, profound, and utterly stunning,  the following are currently available from our collection:

Barbaresco, Santo Stefano, Giacosa 1979 — 425.
Barbaresco, Asili, Riserva Giacosa,  2000 — 650.
Barbaresco, Bricco Asili, Ceretto, 1985 — 270.
Barbaresco, Podere del Pajore, Giovanni Moresco, 1979 — 295.
Barbaresco, Montefico, Riserva Produttori, 1978 — 240.
Barbaresco, Asili, Riserva Produttori del Barbaresco, 1982 — 330.
Barolo, Villero, Giuseppe Mascarello, 1978 — 320.
Barolo, Ceretto Brunate, 1978 — 425.

**These must be purchased in advance, so we can prepare them and let them breathe for 6-8 hours before your dinner. In order to arrange for one of these spectacular wines, please email Shelley@oliveto.com. **
