When I was a student in Boston, I tried to go to as many wine tastings as I could. At a Vineyard Road tasting I ran into Riccardo who works at Paolo Scavino. It is always a pleasure when someone who works at the winery or makes the wine comes to the tastings. It makes it a lot more personal. I met Riccardo again when I was in Barolo last summer, he gave me a tour of the winery and then we tasted some wines. They were as good as I remember.

You can check out their wines here.

Interview With Luca Comello

An interview with my friend Luca Comello of The Winefathers that gives a deeper understanding of their project to bring artisanal Italian winemaking to the forefront. ¬†Great work they’re doing to spread awareness for winemakers that wouldn’t otherwise get noticed by importers, distributors, and the wine buying public. ¬†All that, and they afford folks a chance to have a row at a vineyard named for them or even get to stay for free at the vineyard?

Great stuff!
