We are thrilled to share the news that Luca will be leading the inaugural seminar this year at the annual Italian Federation of Independent Grape Growers (FIVI) fair and market in November (29-30).
This year’s theme for the opening seminar is Franciacorta.
FIVI is Italy’s leading association for independent grape growers. Its member must grow, vinify, bottle, and sell their own wines (no négociants or bottlers are allowed to join).
Luca has served on its advisory board for some time now. And in recent years, the body has become one of the most important voices and lobbying groups for independent grape growers in Italy.
As a grower and producer of Prosecco, it’s a great honor for him to have been chosen to present Franciacorta (a separate appellation in a different region than his).
“To be honest,” he wrote on his Facebook, “I’m really nervous about this. Leading a tasting like this for such an important appellation and wineries is an enormous responsibility. I promise to do my best.”
You can view the flight of wines Luca will be pouring on Facebook.
Franciacorta is a classic method wine while Prosecco can be a Charmat method or an ancestral method wine.
Franciacorta is grown in Brescia province in the region of Lombardy.
Prosecco is grown in Treviso province in the region of Veneto.
