EVENTS

We will be tasting these wines on Labor Day from 5-7:30
For September we are going to travel to the far North to the region of Alto Adige. The region has one of the most complicated histories imaginable. At one point it was controlled by The Romans, Germanic Tribes, Charlegmane, Holy Roman Empire, various Counts and Duchy’s, The Hapsburgs, Bavaria, The Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, Austria, Italy, Mussolini’s Italy, Germany, and then back to Italy. As one can imagine this caused quite the headache in the region. Most of the population is German speaking and after WW1 there were problems integrating this populous into Italy.
