    Raw Wine 2022: Magula Family Winery

    Raw Wine 2022: Magula Family Winery

    On this episode of HRN On Tour, we travel to the Raw Wine 2022 festival in Maspeth, Queens, where Sam Benrubi of The Grape Nation sat down with Vladimir Magula of the Magula Family Winery in Slovakia. The two discuss the past, present, and future of natural wine in Slovakia, working on a family vineyard, and how climate change has and will affect yields, among other topics.

    The Magula Family Winery passionately creates natural wines exclusively from their own organically grown grapes of Slovak ingenious varieties. Their winegrowing journey started in 2007, when they re-planted an old vineyard that was returned to their family. Since 2016 they have farmed bio-dynamically. They care deeply about the nature and the environment in which we exist, trying to live in harmony with it. Their wines, mainly of red varieties, are intense, yet subtle and gentle, with crisp and charming character of northern terroirs.

    Defending “Real” Italian Food at Terra Madre

    Defending “Real” Italian Food at Terra Madre

    Beatrice Ughi founded Gustiamo more than 20 years ago in The Bronx with the goal of introducing New Yorkers to “real” Italian food. Her importing business disrupted existing models by serving consumers directly (in addition to retailers and restaurants). She talks with Dylan Heuer about why it took until later in life to appreciate her native country’s foodways, how sharing the stories of Italian makers helps differentiate authentic products from misleading labels, and what her four year quest to find the perfect pasta entailed.
