  • Cavalieri Summer Event

    This Thursday, July 11th we are happy to welcome the Ordine dei Cavalieri del Tartufo e dei Vini d’Alba — the Order of the Knights of the Truffle and Wines of Alba, Bay Area-Napa Delegation — to Perbacco for their summer event. This group is made up of people who share a love and interest for wine, truffles, and the landscape of Alba. Cavalieri Umberto Gibin and Cavalieri-to-be Chef Staffan Terje will  be hosting a group of new knights, catch up with the existing knights, and enjoy an extraordinary menu of Staffan’s Piemontese specialties (menu can be found below).

    The evening will begin at 6:45pm with an hors d’oeuvres reception, followed by a five-course dinner beginning at 7:15pm. The dinner will include an excellent selection of wines selected especially for this event from the cellars of the Grinzane Cavour and we also invite you to bring your own bottle of Langhe wine to be opened without additional corkage on this very special night only. You do not have to be a knight to attend! This special evening will be $150 per guest, plus tax and gratuity.

    To secure your seats, please e-mail Stephen Lee, Director of Hospitality & Private Events, at or call 415-955-0663. We hope you’ll join us!
