Drink This Weekend Edition: Storied wine with hometown ties hits local market

Friday, January 21st, 2011

012111_DRINKTHISWEEKENDWe’re always rooting for the home team, and in the case of Scarpetta Pinot Grigio – a project by St. Louis native Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson and master sommelier Bobby Stuckey – we’re excited to cheer on the arrival of this delicious wine.

Mackinnon-Patterson began his career at Old Warson Country Club in St. Louis (his parents still reside in St. Louis). While working as a chef de partie at The French Laundry, he met Stuckey, wine director of Thomas Keller’s famed Yountville restaurant. The two joined forces in 2004, opening Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, Col., and a few years later launched their wine project, La Scarpetta, focusing on white wine from the Friulano region of Italy. Among their accolades, Mackinnon-Patterson was named among Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs in 2005, earned the distinction of Best Chef: Southwest from the James Beard Foundation in 2008 and was a contestant on season one of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters. In 2008, Stuckey received a James Beard nomination for Outstanding Wine and Spirits Professional.

The 2009 Scarpetta Pinot Grigio, which landed in St. Louis this week, is a blend of grapes sourced from three vineyards in Friuli. The wine, which local master chef Gerard Craft called “amazing” and “delicious,” was fermented, aged and blended in stainless steel, resulting in a clean, vibrant, refreshing drink.

Want to try it? It’s available by the glass ($8) and the bottle ($30) at Craft’s flagship Niche beginning today. It’s also on the shelves at St. Louis Wine Market and Tasting Room and at Veritas Gateway to Food and Wine, both in Chesterfield.
