Vietti tasting with Elena Penna Currado Vietti
Please join TWM on Thursday, October 13th at 6pm as we taste the wines of the Italian producer Vietti with Elena Penna Currado Vietti. For lovers of Italian wine, Nebbiolo, or just lovers of the finest expressions of a grape, being led through this is a special tasting with Mrs. Vietti herself; it is an event not to miss! The tasting will be held at our Old Town location (2112 North 30th Street), with limited seating. We will be closing the shop early for this special private event, and we will serve some charcuterie for the attendees to nibble on during the tasting.
Vietti is the oldest continuously operating winery in Barolo, based in the small medieval village of Castiglione Falletto, the heart of Piedmont’s famous “Langhe” wine region. The winery produces a range of wines based off native Piedmont grape varietals and is known for their exceptional vineyard holdings in 11 of the Barolo Grand Cru sites.
About our guest speaker, Elena Penna Currado Vietti
From 1990 till 1994 Elena worked with her family’s hospitality business.
In August 1994 she joined the Miroglio Group, one of the leading Italian fashion companies, headquartered in Alba, where she worked for almost 11 years alongside the GM and CFO of the group.
Also in August 1994 Elena married Luca Currado Vietti, third generation winemaker of the Vietti Winery. Together they have two children, Michele, born in 2000, and Giulia, born in 2002. For many years after marrying Luca, Elena divided herself between her position at the Miroglio Group and her husband’s family company until 2005 when she decided to join the winery full-time.
Today Elena is the brand and export manager for Vietti and actively manages marketing projects and hospitality at the Estate. When she’s not at the winery – which is often – she travels the world representing the winery and sharing her knowledge and passion for Vietti’s wines and the Piedmont region.
