Buongiorno a tutti from Friuli-Venezia-Giulia!
I had a chance to participate to the special Orange Wine Tasting organized by the local Association of Sommelier yesterday evening. The wine event was celebrated in a spectacular Enoteca in the very city center of Cormons, a nice place dedicated to wine.
More than fifty professional sommeliers in attendance to taste six orange wines while we listened to the winemakers presenting their vineries. I found this experience very exciting especially because after the event we could get to one-on-one conversations with them for asking about their production and getting to know more about their life philosophy. Found Orange Wine producers very down-to-earth and friendly people. We finished after 11pm and, you know, it was hard for me leave the place and go back home…
The wines they choose to present to us were some of the best they have on the market presently:
Stefano Novello from Ronco Severo (Friuli Colli Orientali) offered Friulano 2011
Aleks Klinec (Brda, Slovenia) presented Rebula 2012
Stefano Bensa from La Castellada (Collio) introduced Pinot Grigio 2011
Paolo Vodopivec (Carso-Kars) presented Vitovska Anfora 201
Klabjan (Istria,Slovenia) offered Malvasia Black Label 2013
Giorgio Clai from Clai Wines (Istria, Croatia) presented Malvazija Svet Javok 2011
It was a nice evening in which besides enjoying wonderful wines, the opportunity to talk to their creators was really unique. Special thanks to Lara Kosic from Primosic Wines, her sympathy is just breathtaking.
