Conterno Tasting

The Barolo Master – Franco Conterno, of Poderi Aldo Conterno

Saturday, October 27th | In-store | 12-4pm


“He was such a strong character, the sort of man you wanted to always have on your side.  When you sat by him, you felt secure and positive…Aldo was a man who enjoyed life and brought lots of joy to life through his wines and friendship.”  – James Suckling, June 4th 2012

FrancoConternoThe phrase “Needs no introduction” could not possibly apply more than it does here.

The late Aldo Conterno has no shortage of titles and descriptors to go with him:  “The great Barolista”, “Emblematic”, “Legendary”, and perhaps the greatest of all, “King of Barolo”.  His recent passing sent waves through the entire world of wine, as reviewers, critics, and wine drinkers everywhere had no shortage of kind words for Aldo Conterno the wine, and Aldo Conterno the person.

Zachys has long been a proud supporter of Aldo Conterno’s wines, and they are a favorite amongst staff members and customers alike.  Thus we are honored to welcome Aldo’s son Franco Conterno, who will be pouring selections from the winery whose name is synonymous with Piedmont and Barolo.  Their 2008 Cru Barolo selections and flawless 2005 Barolo Gran Bussia are only part of the incredible lineup being poured.

Aldo Conterno’s sons are proud to carry on their father’s legacy.  Come to the store and experience first-hand the brilliance and beauty of Aldo Conterno wines!
