Theme evenings

Serate a tema Ristorante Rigolo
Theme evenings

Traditionally, there are some foods that are enjoyed only on certain occasions. The changing of the seasons with the typical products of the land, allows us to sample delicacies only at certain times of the year, seeing that it is difficult to propose a menu of the many excellent dishes of Italian regional cuisine.


In homage to the varied and valuable cuisine of other places and times of Mother Nature, for more than eight years Rigolo has been organising monthly Theme Nights with wine tastings and creative, unique menus for the evening that also involve grape-cultivators, fishermen, olive-growers and people who contribute every day to making good Italian eating and drinking wonderful throughout the world.

Send us an email to receive invitations for the future theme nights that we organise.

The next theme night is dedicated to Gavi with the guest being the LA SCOLZA estate.

Ten days ago, along with my two young wine enthusiasts, I went to visit the cellar at Gavi: when arriving at the estate, the atmosphere that unites the past and the present with great harmony stands out. The estate is, in fact, the oldest in the area of ​​Gavi both for the cultivation of Cortese grapes - dating back to the early 1900s - and for begin under the continual management by the same family.

Gavi dei Gavi is a surprising wine: the delicate scent contrasts its strong character, a great personality combination. It is a white wine but its characteristics are closer to those of the famous red wines. In 90 years, Gavi dei Gavi has become a wine that has conquered the world (it is one of the favorite wines of the Queen!) without ever betraying its origins and its characteristics.

We will go to the oenologist of La Scolza Estate to discover the senses and secrets of Gavi.

I await you, with my most cordial greetings.
