November 14, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We will be featuring Sincette, Lake Garda (Demeter Certified) with Giuseppe LoCascio and Andrea Salvetti as part of our ongoing Biodynamic series. Andrea's English is lots better than our Italian, but he is glad to have his importer, Giuseppe, to facilitate translation. We fell in love with the Sincette, Groppello that we'll be tasting together. We will also taste their Chiaretto, a rosé blend of Groppello, Marzemino and Barbera that we think will make a nice addition at the Thanksgiving table.

Nate Winters kicked off our 2019-2020 tasting season with the most informative, well-organized, comprehensive presentation of biodynamics we've heard to date.
