In January we celebrated not a person, not a place but a concept, our concept that doing things in a different way, thinking and applying ideas out of the box (or better, out of the barrique), approaching your work not just like a necessary effort but more like an entertaining activity, and be successful in it, is possible. We know that some people made bets on how long we would last. Some may have never really believed in us. Others even tried to make our existence harder than it already was. But many more than the sum of the previous ones helped, supported and backed us in the moment where it was most needed or even just when we had more people than available chairs in our wine bar.
Some of you already had the chance to savoy the “Bagna Cauda” during our participation at the 72hrs True Italian Aperitivo that went on stage at the end of last September. For those who didn’t manage to come, or for those who loved it and are looking forward for the next meeting with this “garlicy” delight we have some good news: Facciola will be one of the proud ambassadors of the “Bagna Cauda Day” the original event that celebrates this typical winter recipe. Originally started in the province of Asti, Piedmont, the event is now taking place in various location not only in Piedmont but also in the neighboring Ligury region and in some selected italian-led bars and restaurants around the world, and guess what? We are the only place in Europe (outside of Italy) where it will be possible to taste the Bagna Cauda! The price of the Bagna Cauda (including free refill) will be of 15€ per person, and, according to the tradition of this event, together with the Bagna Cauda we will offer our beloved Barbera d’Asti PI-CIT 2015 by La Montagnetta at the incredible price of 13€ per bottle!
