Virtual Wine Tasting Process
For those of you new to the tastings, we open two bottles together– available for purchase at Windham Wines– and talk with the winemaker or winery owner about terroir, grapes, farming practices and wine.
Come into the shop, buy the wines, leave us your email so that we can send the Zoom link. For the tasting, have your wines ready, prepare some snacks, and relax into the evening with some delicious conversation.
Email us your email address so that we can send you the link to participate.

Virtual Tasting – Boniperti Winery, Alto Piemonte
February 13, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Boniperti Winery, Alto Piemonte
with Gilberto Boniperti
We have continued to return to Northern Italy as an area of exciting discovery and wine values. Once again we travel to Piedmont, this time to its northern reaches, Alto Piemonte, where we will taste with Gilberto the two signature red grapes of the region– Nebbiolo, of course, and Vespolina. Windham Wines’ wine club cognoscenti will recognize Boniperti as one of our summer red selections when the Vespolina, Favolalunga, was included and received broad approval.
Gilberto is part of that wave of young people returning to an area that was evacuated after two world wars decimated the region and led so many locals to migrate to the cities, especially Milan, for work. The quality of these wines has increased exponentially in the past 10-15 years. We have enjoyed growing with these young risk takers. Gilberto owns 3.5 hectares in the region, farmed organically, all work done manually.
