Boston-based blogger Karin O’Brien graciously featured our Franciacorta Real Story campaign on her blog Wine and Meaning last week with a post on Franciacorta, an interview with me, and a preview of our tasting this week at Wine Bottega in Boston (6-8 p.m.; no registration required; details below).

In our interview, she asked me to explain what Franciacorta is.

Whenever I’m asked that question, I always start my answer in the same way, whether I’m talking to seasoned wine professionals and bloggers like Karin or whether I’m talking to my 83-year-old mother and her friends.

Franciacorta is a place.

Franciacorta is an Italian wine appellation.

Franciacorta is a wine.

It’s so important to remember that Franciacorta is not just a wine or an appellation but also a place — a “territory” as the Italians would loosely translate from their native tongue.

Check out Karin’s post here.

And here are details for Wednesday’s tasting.

Thank you, Karin! And looking forward to meeting and tasting with you on Wednesday.
