Biodynamic series: Sincette, Lake Garda-- Demeter certified with Giuseppe LoCasio and Andrea Salvetti Andrea's English is lots better than our Italian, but he is glad to have his importer, Giuseppe, to facilitate translation.

Biodynamic series: Biodynamic Roundtable with Nate Winters and Nate Wahl, Giuseppe and Andrea, and Paul Biodynamics is not "one size fits all."

Biodynamic series: Luigi Giordano Winery, Barbaresco-- organic One of our very favorite sparkling wines, the Luigi Giordano, Brut Nature, was created by the young Matteo Rocco, Luigi's grandson, as an experiment during his time in enology school in Alba. We'll let Matteo tell that story as we sample his prize. The winery is located in the village of Barbaresco, a stone's throw away from its iconic clock tower. We'll be tasting a Barbaresco as well.Find out more »
