POCHI MA BUONI – ‘SMALL BUT GREAT'
Pop-Up Rustic Italian dining experience at Cargo Road Wines Cellar Door
Saturday 22nd October 2016, 7pm
Join us for a ‘wild-style degustation’ dinner during the Orange Wine festaval, featuring the pop-up Pochi ma Buoni rustic Italian dining experience and hosted by Cargo Road Wines winemaker and the Orange region’s ‘Vigneron of 2015’, James Sweetapple.
“This is all about showcasing our Cargo Road Wines in an informal and fun setting, so you get the real flavour of the wines being complemented with a hearty, home-cooked meal,” explains James.
“Our focus for the evening is on creating an experience of good food and good wine in good company, very much like a private dinner party but with the added bonus of being in a wine cellar.”
On the menu
Glass of sparkling on arrival
Piselli e Pancetta e Funghi (peas and pancetta and mushroom)
Rigatoni alla Vaccinara (traditional Roman dish of oxtail in tomato sauce with chocolate)
Mille Foglie (a thousand layers of goodness)
Each course will be paired by a wine from the Cargo Road Wines portfolio, with wine-maker James Sweetapple presenting the story behind each of the wines during each course.
About Pochi ma Buoni
Pochi ma Buoni is a fun phrase used by youthful Italians to refer to an event that is small and select, but which attracts like-minded, gregarious people. Directly translated it means “only for the few, but very good”, however we like to explain it more simply as “small but great”.
