Lorenzo and son Guido, represent the 5th and 6th generation producing natural wine in the family’s vineyards and winery, which were founded in 1846 in Costigliole d’Asti.
Why did you decide to join LIBERATE THE GRAPE! and what do you think this event may represent to wine enthusiasts?
We appreciate the effort to promote natural wine in London. We hope it will be very stimulating for the public to be able to experience real tastes in wine.
Let’s talk about wine. Why do you think it is important to safeguard local traditions and varieties?
Local tradition normally is a sum of trial and errors which yields to solid results. Local varieties are a must in expressing the best relationship between vine and terroir and have the highest probability to perform well year after year.
Can you tell us a traditional food & wine matching of your region?
Our tradition with Barbera wine is to pair it with most important piemontese dishes, for example “Bollito misto”, “Arrosto” and “Fritto misto”. For Nebbiolo the best match is with game.
You will be showcasing different wines at LIBERATE THE GRAPE! but if we were forced to pick only 1 wine to taste, which one do you think cannot be missed?
We think that Barla, from a very old vineyard, best represents our family tradition in wine making.
