    Piemonte Travel Series: Anna & Valentina Abonna | On The Road With Stevie Kim

    Piemonte Travel Series: Anna & Valentina Abonna | On The Road With Stevie Kim

    Welcome to Episode 1979 of On The Road Special Edition. Stevie Kim heads to the Ceretto winery in the Piedmont region of northern Italy where she meets Anna & Valentina Abonna of Marchesi di Barolo

    Discover the history of the ancient estate where the winery is located, the development of this extraordinary family winery, and the winemaking techniques involved in producing its famous Barolo wines.

    More about the winery: 
    The Marchesi di Barolo Estate encompasses approximately 100 acres of vineyards in the Langhe, some of the finest in Piedmont. The cellars are located in the village of Barolo. Marchesi di Barolo was the first to vinify Nebbiolo grapes in a dry style – Barolo, as we know it today was born in their cellars. It is this vision, combined with a natural synthesis of climate, culture and care that gives each bottle of Marchesi di Barolo its extraordinary and uniquely endowed characteristics. The early Falletti dynasty established vineyards throughout their land, which were acquired in the late 19th century by Pietro Abbona, the undisputed patriarch of Barolo! Since that time, Marchesi di Barolo has sustained a vibrant history of Innovation and success.
    Since 2006, the estate has been under the direction of the family of Ernesto and Anna Abbona.
    Today Marchesi di Barolo remains a family business.

    VIA 2024 - Magna Graecia  Where it all began? pt 2 of 3| Everybody Needs A Bit Of Scienza

    VIA 2024 - Magna Graecia  Where it all began? pt 2 of 3| Everybody Needs A Bit Of Scienza

    Welcome to Episode 1978, where Prof. Scienza takes questions from the wine community and answers them in his inimitable way! These shows are generally in the Italian language. Today’s episode is a recorded session from VIA Verona 2024 Seminar: Magna Graecia - Where it all began? pt 2 of 3

    Abstract: 
    Beginning in the 8th century B.C., Greek expansion into Italy fostered the spread of winemaking innovation in the South and Sicily, bringing improvements and changes in both viticulture and winemaking. Wine had an important symbolic and cultural value for the Greeks, and was at the heart of Dionysian mysticism. During this masterclass, Professor Attilio Scienza will explore these topics and their legacy.

    If you want to learn more about the Professor:
    The one who checks all the facts and regulates when we mistakenly type “Verdicchio” in place of “Vermentino.” Attilio Scienza is a full professor at the University of Milan in the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences where he teaches courses on genetic improvements to the vine; he also teaches Viticulture in the Master’s program of the University of Turin in Asti. He has been the lead for many national research projects in the field of physiology, agricultural techniques, and vine genetics. As the author of over 350 publications on vine and viticulture in national and international journals, you can bet he knows his stuff!

    The Shapes & Sizes of Brand Ambassadors for Luxury Wine | wine2wine Business Forum 2023

    The Shapes & Sizes of Brand Ambassadors for Luxury Wine | wine2wine Business Forum 2023

    Welcome to Episode 1977, where we present the session recordings from the wine2wine Business Forum 2023. In today's episode, we delve into- The Shapes & Sizes of Brand Ambassadors for Luxury Wine with Peter Yeung DipWSET, Matteo Lunelli

    Italian Wine Podcast is proud to be a media partner of wine2wine Business Forum and we are pleased to present this series of market focus sessions, recorded during the Forum held in Verona in November 2023.

    wine2wine Business Forum is an international wine business event, held annually in Verona, Italy since 2014. The event is a key annual  reference point for wine producers and wine professionals from around the world, providing an opportunity to network, develop and expand their wine business worldwide.

    About the session: 
    Brand ambassadors can be a key element in spreading the story and messaging of a winery. This is particularly important for luxury wineries, where sales are more brand-driven vs packaging or shelf placement driven. Brand ambassadors can take a variety of “shapes and sizes”, from being part of people’s jobs to a full team of brand ambassadors globally. This session will explore the role of brand ambassadors, how they add value, and the common archetypes of effective brand ambassadors in the context of luxury wine.

    Guest Bio - 
    Alan Manley began annual visits to the Barolo region in 1995, 2 years before opening the Colorado Springs restaurant Primitivo with a 2200 selection wine list. He began coming to the Barolo for harvests in 2007, working for 2-3 months with a different winemaker each vintage to learn the subtleties of each producer’s methods. In 2011, he moved to the area permanently, first working in the cellar of Luciano Sandrone and then at the Bartolo Mascarello and Cavallotto wineries. 2012 saw his first production of an experimental quantity of wine from a 1000 square meter vineyard on the Pernanno hill in Castiglione Falletto. In 2015 his vineyard holdings expanded enough to incorporate as an Azienda Agricola and commercial production of Barolo began with 2800 bottles made in that first 2015 vintage year. In 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo was added to the production. Currently the winery farms nearly 5 hectares of land and produces Barolo, Langhe Nebbiolo and a small amount of Chinato. Max production for the small M8 cantina is 12,000 bottles Barolo and 12,000 bottles Langhe Nebbiolo each vintage.

Podcast

Great interviews!!
You should talk about other opportunities in the wine industry besides winemakers.
I handle the TTB international side and it can be a challenge and never dull

Laytony10 ,

Love Monty’s personality and of course Italian Wine

Monty’s personality is fantastic. Funny, very knowledgeable. He’s very witty with the all winemakers or owners of the vineyard that makes the interview so engaging. This is fantastic listen! If you love wine and like a little humor on a dry topic ;) you will absolutely love this, especially if you love Italian wine!

Palm Springs Sommelier ,

Insightful and entertaining

Informative and nuanced, Monty approaches each interview with a keen interest in showcasing the best producers that articulate the special qualities of each regional wine found throughout Italy. Truly unique and a must listen for anyone interested in furthering their Italian wine knowledge.
