Meet the Producer: Virtual Wine Tasting with Grifalco
Presenting Meet the Producer, a virtual wine tasting with producers across the Italian peninsula! Each month, one of Cavinona's winemakers will select three of their favourite bottles and host a virtual tasting where we will learn the story and characteristics behind each of their indigenous Italian wines. In addition to picking up your three bottles of wine (750ml) at Spaccio (22 Sackville St.) we will be emailing you your Zoom access link 24 hours before the start of your class. Once you pick up your kit, store all bottles in the fridge.
This month we have Andrea Piccin from Grifalco! The Piccin family were farmers and winemakers originally based in Tuscany, but moved to Basilicata about fifteen years ago to reignite their passion for organic farming and terroir-driven wines. The name of the winery pays homage to the family's Tuscan roots, but also to their home in Basilicata. Grifalco is a play on the gryphon, the symbol of Montepulciano, and the falcon, the symbol of Monte Vulture. Grifalco makes exquisite wine with the Aglianico grape, a celebrated hearty red grape cultivated in southern Italy.
We look forward to having you join us in exploring the wines of Grifalco!
