An Italian Wine & Cheese Experience with Chef & Sommelier Roberto Crocenzi
Saturday, November 25, 7-10pm (Sold Out)

Leaning Ladder welcomes Chef, Sommelier & Certified Cheese Master Taster, Roberto Crocenzi for a one of a kind wine and cheese tasting experience. From the spectacular Tuscan region of Italy, Roberto will educate guests on the beautiful history and delicious culture of Tuscany. As a highly accredited Italian sommelier, Roberto promises to bring a memorable wine and cheese experience learning the differences in quality wine and cheeses. During this unique class Roberto will offer between 6-8 wine and cheese pairing samples, and valuable wine & cheese education. This classes is perfect for all experience and interest levels of Italian wine and cheese.

About Roberto Crocenzi:

Roberto has been following a path of passion for food, wine and the people who produce them his entire life. As all excellent cooks, he learned the value of quality ingredients bought locally and in season, and that of simple recipes with an emphasis on freshness and taste.

These principles have greatly influenced the menu in his restaurant Da Roberto in the medieval village of Montisi. His relationship with the farmers and winemakers is an important ingredient, and from them he is always learning. Roberto is dedicated to the Slow Food Italia movement, supporting their tenets of protecting small growers and artisanal producers, respecting the animals, safeguarding the environment, and promoting biodiversity.

In 2001 Roberto entered the hospitality business, starting in Abruzzo with a restaurant in the village of Scanno. He later moved to Tuscany in 2004 to run a small charming bed and breakfast, and then a countryside trattoria. Roberto began making wine with his father (who learned from his grandfather) in their garage when he was a teenager and his path eventually led to the study of viniculture, graduating in 2002 as a Sommelier by A.I.S., the Associazione Italiana Sommelier.

In 2012, he completed a 2 year program, Maestro Assaggiatore Formaggio (Cheese Master Taster) by O.N.A.F. (Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiatori Formaggio). And in 2013 he passed the first level (out of three) of Meats Taster at O.N.A.S., Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiatori Salumi.

This passion for food and wine has led to a desire to share a conversation with others about its influence on the culture and lifestyle of Italy and to increase the enjoyment and pleasure of authentically Italian food and wine.
