Cantrina in real time

posted on 4 March 2011
I am writing from New York… I try in English (no time, unfortunately to have our dear Michael Benson translating for us). The weather is fine, better than in Italy, chilly temperature but no snow. The city is amazing, as always and each time I’m back it seems to me like being back home. Just an update about the mess I’m doing here, working in New York for the second time this year. Today a benefit event will be held by the Brooklyn based Issue Project Room, rapidly becoming the point of reference for contemporary art in the New York area. Cantrina is a proud sponsor and our wines will be the only ones in tasting for the night. This link with art is going on coming back in my life and I like being part of the art world through my “creative” and unconventional wines. I am more and more convinced that the difficult way I started 12 years ago is my way. But it was hard, and still it is. New York is oftem defined as the city of opportunities, I’ll let you know when back… actually I will have to report to Diego (who is my business partner) about this flying back and forth to New York. Otherwise he will start to think business is just a good reason to spend a slice of my life in the Big Apple. Cristina

Random considerations regarding drought

Piante siccità
Drought, increasingly frequent now, is one of the signs of climate change in action, but for those who live in Europe, our current 2022 constitutes a true, and significant, turning point. It’s no longer a matter of numbers, statistics, appeals from environmentalists and scientists: each one of us, throughout this dry year

2021 year-end report

posted on 17 December 2021
Here we are at the end of 2021, and it has been even more stressful and challenging from various points of view: the freeze we had in the spring; the uncertainties we are all aware of, that make it so hard to make long-term plans; the work that we had to do, which exceeded all mid-year and later projections; and finally our usual autumn newsletter is off the presses so late. Cantrina is known for producing, in very limited editions, wines whose hallmarks are decisive personalities and strong characters, in some cases utterly unique, wines that targeted to niche markets of dedicated wine-lovers and represent the quintessence and vital spirit of our winery.

Virtual tour and new e-commerce

posted on 27 August 2021
Over the past few months, we have been working on a new project that we are now ready to launch. With the goal of cancelling geographical boundaries and reducing the distance between all you loyal wine-lovers, we have re-structured, updated, and enlarged our mygroppello platform. This virtual universe will allow you to relate to our partners abroad and to purchase what we produce at Cantrina. We also improved our tours here at the winery, which you can now book online both at www.cantrina.it and at mygroppello; for all of you Amici di Cantrina who are reading this, nothing will change, and tours will obviously remain complimentary. Just access our online calendar and come see us: we’re ready to welcome you here with our usual straightforward simplicity. For those of you farther away, and those who would like to know more about us before coming, mygroppello also has a section dedicated to a virtual tour of Cantrina, our uniquely-easy way of helping you to discover our small universe here at Cantrina.
