On Wednesday 12th October The Ox Clifton will be teaming up with one of Italy’s most esteemed wineries, Bertani, to treat you to a very special one off evening of fabulous food and exceptional wine.
Founded in 1857 by the brothers Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani, in Quinto di Valpantena, north of Verona, Bertani are purveyors of some of the finest wine in Italy. As one of the leading producers of Amarone (the ‘king’ of Veneto wines) they can proudly claim that their wines are enjoyed by aristocrats and royals the world over, even gaining endorsement from the Italian Royal House (Real Casa) is 1923, and lucky for you, we’re bringing them to Bristol for your enjoyment!
This very exclusive dinner will be a fantastic introduction to this icon of Italian wine, and our executive chef has created a truly spectacular menu designed to perfectly match a flight of Bertani’s finest red, white and dessert wines. Federico Polacco from Bertani will also be on hand to talk you through each pairing.

Bertani has been making Amarone Classico Bertani since 1958, and is well known for their methods. The grapes are set aside to dry on the “aréle” (racks made from bamboo canes), according to the traditional production method. Fermentation in concrete and ageing in large barrels for at least six years give it a stable structure, making it one of the longest-lived red wines in the world.
For £85 you can enjoy a delicious five course menu, with welcome canapés, served alongside five of Bertani’s award winning wines. We’ll be closing the restaurant specially for this exclusive one off event and places are bound to be in high demand, so book your place here and join us for a truly outstanding evening of fine food, fabulous wines and even better company.
