Wine is a love story — a process of a people who breathe through the land — true land stewards who call vines their children; their grapes, grandchildren. To be truly great wine, it needs to have more than just great stuff. That stuff needs to share a story of care, passion and love.
Let’s tell that love story, shall we?
Once a month, this blog will explore the inner workings of one winemaker or Produttore di Vino that makes up the story of the Cafe di Scala wine menu. As many of you know, our wine list is comprised of 100% Italian varietals — from the sun drenched clay and mineral velocity of Sicilian Nero d’Avola to the cooler temps, moist soil and lower Alps that make up the poetry of Piedmonte’s legendary Barolo townships.
We hope to educate you not only about the brilliance of a wine producer and their relationship to their wine, but also the wine itself. We’ll share tips about when and how to enjoy each wine with the skills to help you make the most of every bottle. Occasionally, we’ll share some videos on how to decant, present and preserve good wine. You don’t have to be an expert, but we hope to at least share some information that we believe you’ll use with your next sip.
Later this week, we’ll share with you the multi-generational producer Paolo Scavino. Stop back to hear their love story.
