Have you ever wanted to be a part of an Italian winery? To have a sense of ownership in the wine making process? To feel like a family member of an artisanal winemaking family? Now you have that chance!
Sassi Italy Tours is proud to have partnered with The Winefathers–a group based in the Friuli region of Italy–that is dedicated to helping raise awareness for artisanal winemakers throughout Italy from north to south and east to west. The Winefathers offer you the chance to, for a nominal amount, be recognized for supporting an artisanal, small family winery that represents the best of Italian wine culture. Depending on the level of your contribution, you earn rewards like bottles or cases of wines, the opportunity to take part in the harvest, a chance to stay at the winery, and a chance to taste local food and wine selections right there in the heart of Italian wine country. You can become part of the winemaker’s family and help artisanal family winemakers get exposure, market their wines, and continue the ancient winemaking traditions that are a deeply rooted part of Italian culture.
For example, for around $100 contribution, one winemaker offers you the chance to be recognized in a book they’re writing about the development of the vineyard, and to get a couple bottles of their best wines right from the vineyard. For a few hundred more, you actually get a free night’s stay at the vineyard, a copy of his book, and a complementary wine tasting when you’re next in his region.
This is a great opportunity to make a difference for a small winemaker in a globalized world of mass production, and to be recognized for your efforts.
