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 – Tiberio, Abruzzo
March 13, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Women Winemaker Series
We are celebrating Women during Women’s History Month (March– but we are starting in late February) by focusing on women winemakers. We have an interesting and fun line-up that takes us from Australia to Austria, with a stop in Italy’s Marche along the way.
If you would like to participate, the wines can be purchased at the shop. When you come in to get the wines, give us the email address to which you would like the zoom link sent. Join the zoom meeting at 4:00 and taste with the winemaker as your guide.
with Cristiana Tiberio, owner-winemaker
I can’t say it any better than Cristiana’s importer, The Sorting Table, and Cristiana herself. “Cristiana is a chemistry graduate and teaches college level winemaking chemistry and sommelier classes. She has an impressive list of training stints including Jacques Selosse in Champagne, Nicolas Joly at Coulee de Serrant, Egon Muller in the Mosel, and various producers in Chablis. . . . In 2011 she took over all the winemaking duties and is now solely responsible for the wines made at the estate. You can assume from her resume that structure and minerality are key to her style.”
We’ll enjoy three of Cristiana’s wines with her on the 13th: two whites– Trebbiano Abruzzo and Pecorino, and a red– Montepulciano. While Cristiana has traveled the world, she believes “that you can only truly make a wine with the greatest expression of the place if you have lived there and really understand the climate and sense of the place.”
