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.
And here are details for Wednesday’s tasting.
Thank you, Karin! And looking forward to meeting and tasting with you on Wednesday.
