No plans for this Sunday night yet?

Head over to Donato Enoteca in Redwood City at 6 p.m. for a just-confirmed dinner event with famed Italian winemaker Gaia Gaja of Gaja Winery.

Located in the small town of  Barbaresco in northwest Italy, the winery has been around since 1859. Known — of course — for its Barbarescos, the winery has been family-run for five generations.

Tomorrow night, single-vineyard Barbarescos and Barolos will be paired with a special Piemontese menu created by Executive Chef Donato Scotti.

The prix fixe will be $45 per person. The restaurant’s regular menu also will be available.

The Gaja wines will be offered by the glass, quarto, mezzo, and bottle, ranging from $25 to $400.

Guests will have the opportunity to purchase a bottle of wine to take home, too.

For reservations, call (650) 701-1000.

  • I won’t be able to make it to the event tomorrow night, unfortunately. But I’m in Redwood City frequently, and am always looking for exciting new restaurants in Northern California (and elsewhere). This one certainly qualifies; their menu looks tremendous, and we look forward to stopping by the next time we’re on the Peninsula. Thanks!

  • Oh, I love long-generations wineries. Will you be going? I wonder what the menu is like.

  • Sophia: Didn’t make it to the wine dinner. But I have eaten at the restaurant. The pastas are wonderful, especially the buckwheat one with mushrooms. To die for! 😉
