Lately on the internet we talk more and more about events being organized by producers, tired of the usual expensive formats, organized by agencies asking hundreds of €urns for fairs and venues that, in most cases, turn out to be resounding fiascos.
This is why, with the help of studiocru’s Davide , we put together a small happening that will take place inAsolo on October 30. There we intend to spark a dialogue about and re-ignite interest in a wine that was slowly disappearing.
On Saturday morning we will meet at the new Locanda Baggio restaurant, to blind taste two Proseccos on lees representing 4 terroirs:
Docg Asolo : Bele Casel and Biondo Jeo
Docg Valdobbiadene: Frozza and Casa Coste Piane
Docg Conegliano: Costadilà and Zanotto
Doc: Lorenzo Gatti and Maurizio Donadi
Tasting will be strictly blind, to avoid being influenced by the Firm’s names.
After the tasting we will make available a classic Prosecco by Silvano Follador, two old vintage Proseccos on lees (to help you understand how this wine can improve with age), as well as a Fortana and a Trebbiano re-fermented in the bottle by Mirco Mariotti.
A luncheon will also be part of the event.
We intended to keep the total participants under 40, but we exceeded that number; we have had so many requests from bloggers/journalists as well as producers, that we are already thinking about a “colfòndo2″!
This post can also be interpreted as an open letter to organizers of events; remember: things are-a-changing…and they begin at the bottom.
