About the Scarpetta Wines: Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
Sometime late in 2013, World Class Wines, started working with Scarpetta by way of introducing their Pinot Grigio to the market. We loved the authenticity and balance of this wine and so did a handful of our customers! Since then, Scarpetta has grown to represent several communes and growers in the region, expanding their production to include the following bottlings: Timido Spumante Brut, Frico Bianco, Sauvignon Colli Orientali del Friuli , Friuliano Bianco, and a Barbera del Monferatto D.O.C.
About Bobby & Lachlan:
You would be hard pressed to find two people more Friuli-obsessed than Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Patterson. Even within Friuli their true passion for the region elicits some curious head scratching and warm Italian chuckles from the humble wine-makers and restaurateurs. Tuscany, sure. Rome, of course. But to be a complete Friuliophile?
Yet that is a title they both wear proudly. After working together at The French Laundry, Bobby as a Master Sommelier and Lachlan as a chef de partie, they moved to Boulder Colorado with the dream of opening a neighborhood restaurant. One fateful trip to Friuli, complete with carsickness from the winding roads of the Alps, traditional Friulian fare, and lots and lots of amazing local wine was enough to seal their fate. They came back to Boulder and opened Frasca Food and Wine, a restaurant dedicated to the cuisine and culture of Friuli. Always digging deeper for Friulian inspiration, Bobby and Lachlan travel to the region several times a year, even taking their entire staff along for a week of eating, wine tasting and general Friuli-worship every summer.
