Antica Casa Scarpa

La Bogliona at Chez Panisse, Berkeley’s iconic restaurant and birthplace of the modern food movement

We couldn’t be more thrilled to learn that the 1996 Scarpa Barbera d’Asti La Bogliona is currently being served at Chez Panisse, the landmark Berkeley, California restaurant and gastronomic icon.

It’s no exaggeration to say that the modern food movement began there.

Founded in 1971 by culinary trailblazer Alice Waters, Chez Panisse launched the “farm to table” phenomenon in the U.S. For many Americans, it was an early opportunity to “eat local.” And although it had a French name and borrowed from classic French cookery, its focus was on ingredients — drawing from northern California’s super produce — over technique.

“Alice Waters,” write the editors of the Slow Food USA website, “is a chef, author, food activist, and the founder and owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, California. She has been a champion of local sustainable agriculture for over four decades.”

We couldn’t be more proud to be part of one of America’s greatest culinary legacies.
