Premier Wine Tasting at Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House
Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House, a Wyndham Grand® Hotel, located at 2300 Ship’s Mechanic Row in Galveston, Texas, invites the public to enjoy a premier wine tasting on October 9, 2010 from 6:00 PM -10:00 PM. The event will include a cheese and meat display as well as live music and free wine tasting. The wine producers, Andrea Doria, Mauro Trevisani and Paolo Milani, will also be available for bottle signing. Tremont House is one of only ten locations in the United States to have these premier wines available to the public at this time. All of the wines will be available for purchase by the glass or bottle.
Andrea Doria comes from a long line of wine makers who have been involved in the production of excellent wines since the mid 1800s. Doria has been working in the family business since 1996. Andre and Davide Doria run the Azienda Agricola Doria in Oltrepo’ Pavese, Lombardy under the supervision of their mother, Giuseppina Sassella Doria.
Mauro Trevisani runs the Azienda Agricola Trevisani in Lombardy with his brother, Gian Pietro Trevisani. Following in their parent’s footsteps, the Trevisani brothers make international wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon rather than traditional local wines like Lugana and Groppello.
Paolo Milani is the export director of the Consorzio Selezione Vini Italiani, the export association that regroups six Italian wineries. He founded the Consorzio at the beginning of 2003 along with 7 wineries with the goal of creating a distribution network in the US and Canada. He is currently trying to expand by networking into some Asian countries.
