Bottles Uncorked

Filippo Bartolotta, inspiring wine expert, educator and author, and cofounder of the luxury travel company Le Baccanti, is on a mission! He is off to the USA for an exhilarating tour with one clear objective in mind: to uncork the most outstanding fine Italian wines and take you on a journey through Italy without leaving the premises.

His unique methods and tasting style have earned him the unofficial title of “Sommelier of the Stars” as he introduces stars like Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, Barack Obama and John Malkovich to the incredible world of Italian food and wine.

Calendar of events

The Late Show with Steven Colbert

From an evening that was to take place in the theater foyer, we were able to turn it in our favor with a “coupe de teatre”: the organization has
welcomed our invitation to FIlippo on stage and all the guests seated with a glass in hand.
Filippo conducted a 45 'tasting with Stephen Colbert presenting all 9 wines in front of a packed theater. The evening is gone
continue with tastings and a four-hour buffet dinner with guests moving between the theater and the foyer while Filippo, Elena and the team
of sommeliers welcomed guests on stage and Chef Berlendis taught them how to make pasta. The mysterious wine game has helped to keep
the atmosphere full of energy and at the end Colbert and Bartolotta took up the word again in front of the theater for the awards ceremony.
A truly magical evening in which the protagonists of Broadway were Italian wines!

Jessica Alba’s home, Los Angeles

The Amazing Italian Wine Journey by Jessica Alba and Friends presented by Filippo Bartolotta in the actress's home in Beverly Hills.
Even in this case we would never have imagined that the evening would have taken such an intense cut with these guests with whom often wine remains a secondary factor. This is not the case with the Amazing Italian Wine Journey where the quality of the wines, the winning format of the event (tested for more than 20 years in 2019)  and Filippo’s enthralling energy always prevail and guests remain 101% involved in entertainment tasting, playing and learning at the same time. To be welcome by wonderful Jessica was a real pleasure!
