We will be partnering with Agricola Vermont for our virtual tasting with Alto Piemonte producer Gilberto Boniperti. Alessandra Rellini and Stefano Pinna, natives of Lombardy and Piemonte respectively, farm privileging soil health and animal welfare to produce traditional, authentic Italian products. They champion “intensive rotational grazing” that they maintain “favors the consumption of grass and legumes at their sweetest point, and the constant movement of muscles allows for healthier animals and more flavorful and healthy meat.”
We have selected a salami and a fresh pasta as pairing partners for our February 13th tasting. Both products can be ordered directly from Agricola Vermont. Stefano, from Piemonte, agreed to a fresh pasta for our tasting, specifying that it should be tajarin, a thinner tagliatelle-like noodle. Though typically they do not ship their fresh pasta, they are making this batch for us. Place your orders by end of day, Monday, February 8th. Your salami and/or pasta will be shipped to Windham Wines for pick-up on Friday, February 12th.
