NQ Wine Club 2024

Thursday, February 22nd, 2024

The NQ Wine Club meets every month at Noi Quattro.  It’s a social event, an informal tour of Italy’s wine regions.  Discovering a land where regional differences are still vibrantly alive and uncovering the rich connection between history, tradition and cuisine.  Featuring, in the main, indigenous grapes and showcasing food from Noi Quattro and The Pasta Factory; stimulating discussion and debate. 

It can often be tricky knowing what wine to serve with what food. Is this white wine suitable for serving with spaghetti carbonara? No definitive list or guide details what wine must be served with a certain meal.  In many restaurants a sommelier will help guide you through this minefield if you are unsure.  Some wines compliment foods and flavours more than others.  However, at the end of the day its very much a matter of personal taste so our evenings are informal.  A social gathering rather than a class; not only a voyage through Italy but also a personal journey exploring what works for you.

What can I expect?

A glass of Prosecco awaits your arrival followed by four wines chosen and introduced by our host 

Gary Newborough and paired with dishes from The Pasta Factory and Noi Quattro. Supported by tasting notes these evenings are designed as an introduction for wine enthusiasts and the wine curious. 

Entry by ticket only bookable on Eventbrite.

Society – Basement, 100 Barbirolli Square, Manchester M2 3BD

This means keeping it simple – using the best ingredients direct from Italy on handcrafted dough. The dough is low yeast and slow fermented, meaning it’s two days in the making, but cooks in less than 90 seconds in their pizza oven. 

As well as pizzas, Noi Quattro will be serving up a fabulous collection of authentic Neapolitan street food including the traditional (and delicious) snack of “stuzzichini” –  bites of fried dough with a selection of toppings. 

“Cuoppo” is a triumph of Italian street food – a  paper cone that holds traditional fried snacks like “cuoppo di scoglio”: calamari, whitebait, baby octopus and seaweed zeppoline. Made to be enjoyed walking through the streets of Naples  – and now Manchester.

Noi Quattro completes the Society family of independent local street food traders, joining  Slap and Pickle, Manzoku Street Food, Chaat Cart, and Yoki Social Table. As well as its independent street food, Society host’s Vocation Brewery’s Manchester taproom with the largest selection of draught beers in the city. 

Tucked away at Barbirolli Square, Society is a hidden hub of street food, craft beer, wine and cocktails. Overlooked by the Bridgewater Hall and surrounded by beautiful fountains, Society is the perfect relaxing spot for food and drinks.

Artist biography

FILIPPO BOSSO – WITH THE NAKED EYE

Filippo Bosso was born in Ayas in 1952 and lives in Piedmont.

Passionate about photography since he was a boy, he refined his shooting technique and his methods in the darkroom working as a student in a photographic studio. His professional activity then developed into other areas and led him from the beginning to visit and learn about various countries, especially in Europe and North America. From 2000 he started going to China for work, where he then moved and lived from 2010 to 2015.

He never abandoned his studies and his passion for photography, which led to the development of numerous photographic series that are completely different from each other but united by minimalist, elegant and clean formal research.

The desire for perfection and stylization is an essential element in photographic images. Bosso chooses in his work to eliminate the superfluous, confusion and unnecessary complications, to rearrange the mind, according to a perspective of sober life, in some ways detached from material things. Not only that, it invites us to concentrate on doing less and doing it well, instead of doing more assuming it is better, it makes us less dispersive, more determined and more present.

By letting the observer complete the scene in his mind, the photographic images create a sense of mystery and are able to arouse emotions through simplicity, leaving room for the spectator’s creativity, pleasantly forcing him to look beyond the obvious and imagine the hidden. Bosso makes us discover how with effective effects of lights and shadows in black and white the beauty of both the sinuous shapes of the lotus leaves and the rigorous geometries of modern architecture can be drawn and how the nature of certain landscapes does not require words or spectacularization. , since they are already something great. As last year CRAG decided to exhibit the works of Daniel Pype, also on this occasion with Filippo Bosso we have chosen to show photographs that for us have a quid pluris that excites us, suspends us in a hidden time, stimulates and inspires us beauty. They are the result of an attentive, intelligent and fine mind and we are sure that the visitor will also perceive their essence.
