“From the land of Arneis, this bottling drinks similar to a reserve-quality Barbaresco, but with slightly brighter acid structure,” says Gregory.
The Wine Program
“We continually source the highest-quality, small-producer, terroir-driven, food-compatible wines from North America, France and around the world,” says Jeff Gregory, the general manager and wine director. “In addition to a selection of hard-to-find wines from well-known regions and varieties, we offer a selection of grower-producer Champagnes, yellow and orange wines, and interesting food-friendly grape varieties like Trousseau Gris, Godello, Savagnin, Petit Rouge, Frappato, Blaufränkisch and Sagrantino to round out our wine selections.” The list at FT33 contains 185 by-the-bottle choices, along with 21 wines by the glass and 14 sweet or fortified wines.
“Our most amazing wine-oriented dish right now features a rabbit saddle stuffed with liguiça [smoke-cured] sausage, served with blue lentils, bacon vinaigrette and pickled onion,” says Gregory. “It pairs amazingly with a Morgon or other bright cru Beaujolais, or with Copain P2 from Anderson Valley, a Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris blend.”
