If the staff at Caro’s charted our own world map, Piedmont might well be at the centre. We are just suckers for this North Italian region and its distinctive, unassailably noble and age-worthy reds. More sensible importers would get to certain a point and then stop adding yet more Piedmont labels to their range. But we’re not sensible.

So a bunch of Piedmont wines have appeared on our shelves in recent times, wines either made by dynamic upstarts of the region or simply labels that are new to us. To keep us abreast of these developments we decided to have a good sit down with these tasty treats.

So please join our owner and Piedmont enthusiast John Caro for a different kind of journey through our range. Yes there will be the odd Barolo, as well as Produttori – our long time companions from Barbaresco. But most labels and vineyards will be fairly new to our customers, despite their deep pedigree and sometimes long histories in the region.

Wines from Piedmont demand food more than any other region, perhaps. So John and Richard’s parents Maurice and Mary Jane Caro will spend another weekend in the kitchen, to ensure our guests are properly looked after on the night. They will be preparing slow cooked meat and fungi ragu on Casareccia Pasta.

Wines to be tasted are: Rinaldi Gavi, Rinaldi Dolcetto, Sandrone Nebbiolo d'Alba, Cantino Del Pino Barbaresco, Produttori Barbaresco 2014 (new vintage), Rocca Barbaresco Rabaja 2014. Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco Gallina 2014, Rinaldi Barolo 2013
