Tuesday 29th November at 7pm.
At FYT Wine Store, Stargarder Straße 62, 10437 Berlin.
Valdisole was born at the beginning of 2015 on the Roero hills, in a small town called Corneliano d'Alba, in the heart of Langhe. Giuseppe and Kyriaki do not originate from a family of winemakers. Their first vineyard was bought online, on a website specialized in used things! It was half of a hectare of abandoned and shabby Nebbiolo.
Today that old vineyard continues to be expanded with addition of both young and old vines between 3 and 60 years old, planted on an altitude of 380 meters a.s.l.
The main part of the vines are located on a pretty steep hill, exposed to south. Some plots are very sandy, some other have clay layers on top but still with high sand concentration. When digging the soil they found hundreds of sea shells, sea fossil and tiny marine stones.
Roero still doesn’t get the attention it deserves, probably because it’s next to two kings like Barolo and Barbaresco, though it has a lot of potential, and a lot of identity.
While the area of Barolo is just stretch of vines, Roero is more wild, with a landscape that alternates vines, forest, crops of nuts tress, genuine and diverse.
We work with Giuseppe and Kyriaki since the beginning of FYT Wine and still they manage to impress us with every new wine and vintage, improving exponentially every time. They experiment a lot, always curios to try new methods of winemaking, but at the same time they always manage to express their terroir and their grapes characteristics. They are always moving forward as well as refining their roots and retuning what they’ve done till now.
In this tasting we will try 5 different wines, each of one will be characterised by a singular profile.
A fun evening tasting wines with some snacks, for all those people curious to know a bit more about natural wine and more specific about Valdisole.
Limited seats to 12 people.
The tasting will be held in English.
You need to be 18+ years old to attend this event.
