“LAGUNA NEL BICCHIERE” (THE LAGOON IN A GLASS) – REDISCOVERED GRAPE VARIETIES
Here we are again, with our host Sergio for our fifth harvest together!
Fresh from our triumph at the Masi Foundation’s Civiltà del Vino awards, we continue our adventure/enterprise of defending the Venetian Lagoon’s landscape and vineyards with a particular sense of pride and enthusiasm. Special thanks go to everybody who has helped us realise our lifelong ambition: volunteers, members and numerous sympathisers, and Doriella, Gastone and Donatella of Slow Food Venezia for their generous hard work, dedication and organisational support, which contributed greatly to restoring the Lagoon’s grape varieties. Our most heartfelt thanks also go to wine-grower and expert Alfio Lovisa (of winemakers La Ganga in Rauscedo) whose contribution to reproducing the rootstock, planting and the use of innovative organic treatments was nothing short of prodigious and infused the whole project with a flavour of experimentation.
Last year’s drought meant we had to look further afield to find new grapes, much as the birds had to. We invite you to come and taste the results.
Coordinated by: Flavio Franceschet and all our many supporters!!!”
