Presented by Scott Rosenberg Thursday, March 21, 2019
8:00 pm atPoughkeepsie Grand Hotel Starlight Room(Lobby Level)
Please join us on Thursday, March 21 for a presentation of some unique (and perhaps unfamiliar) wines from Il Barilotto’s wine list.Presenting these wines will be Scott Rosenberg, Manager/partner of Il Barilotto in Fishkill.Scott has selected a group of wines that shows the diversity of his list, and also the care with which it is put together, including both some lower- priced and some more expensive selections on offer.As usual, Scott’s presentation will focus on food-wine pairing. Things being as they are, many of the people who choose to dine at Il Barilotto aren’t familiar with their wide range of Italian wines, so Scott has become very adept at helping diners make choices that fit their budget and pair well with the food they’re ordering. Some of the wines we will taste include:
White: 2017 Ischia Bianco - Casa D'Ambra (Campania, Island of Ischia)
Reds: 2014 Nerello Mascalese "Anatema Rosso" - Davide Bentivegna (Sicily) 2015 Ciliegiolo "Carmino" - Zanchi (Umbria) 2011 Sfursat - Nino Negri (Lombardy, think “Amarone made with Nebbiolo”) Scott Rosenberg is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.He is originally from Rochester, NY, but spent many of his younger years growing up in Minneapolis.After moving to the East Coast for culinary school, he decided to stay in the area permanently.He has worked for Eddie Lauria both at Aroma Osteria (as a waiter) and later became General Manager for Lauria at his newer restaurant Il Barilotto.He then moved to NYC and worked at Café Boulud as Assistant General Manager.He was happy learning more about French food and service, but still missed the experience of Il Barilotto and his mentor Mr. Lauria.At the beginning of 2004 Scott returned to Fishkill and became co-owner as well as General Manager.
If you’re a patron of Il Barilotto, you may know that Scott is probably as likely to be “on the line” in the kitchen as he is managing the dining room.He will nonetheless always be available to help with wine selections!
