'Castello di Potentino' - Pop-Up Restaurant


Pop-Up Italian Restaurant


Castello di Potentino’, producers of our ever popular Tuscan wines: Piropo, Sacromonte (listed as one of the top 12 wines in Tuscany – Guida L’Espresso) and Lyncurio & FromVineyards Direct Ireland Ltd.


As part of the Edible exhibition at Dublin’s Science Gallery.


Friday March 2nd 18.00 – 21.30

Wine-maker Charlotte Greene will be on hand to guide you through her delicious wines, along with fresh local Italian Fayre.  It promises to be a unique Italian experience in the heart of Dublin.

The Potentino Pop-Up grew from missing the warm breezy September evenings chatting under the loggia eating a plate of pasta sipping a glass of Sacromonte, or cozily toasting bruschetta in front of the fire before enjoying a chestnut and quince soup in the winter and discussing the olive harvest.  Our aim is to recreate the castle conviviality in other settings.  Recipes are all Potentino specials born out of inventive local cooking traditions and ingredients. We plan to pop-up wherever we can.

We only have 15 x tickets available (45 covers in total, however 30 are reserved for patrons of the Gallery)

€50 per headAs placed are strictly limited, please call with CC details to reserve your place.

About Castello di Potentino

The Greenes have owned properties in the Tuscan Maremma for over 30 years. Starting with a farmhouse near the coast, which they sold to the Biondi Santi family, they gradually moved inland. Castello di Potentino is their second major project in the Grosseto area and was bought in 1999 as a dilapidated and overgrown ruin. The castle occupies a commanding position of top of a large hill in the valley between Seggiano and Montegiovi, often known as the ‘Golden Basin’ because of its wonderful fertility.

Under the guidance of talented oenologist Charlotte Horton the estate is fast becoming one of the stand-out wine producers in the region. Guida L’Espresso, the main Italian wine guide, awarded the Sacromonte 5 bottles, listing it as one of their top 12 wines in Tuscany 2010, and Decanter Magazine has given several of their vintages 4 stars.
