ProWein 2015

posted on 20 March 2015
Here I am back from Prowein, and this year simply confirms my opinion from the first year I participated, that it’s a thoroughly professional event, and very useful to wine professionals. Yes, there’s a lot of activity in the halls, but it’s quite calm and serious, and one doesn’t get over-tired. Here are some pix of Merum’s stand, with Andreas, who is not only a great connoisseur of native-grape wine and fine olive oils, but a good friend especially! Merum’s space was host to some 20 producers from various Italian regions, each with its own distinctive grape variety. This year, I was the “Queen of Groppello,” as Andreas humorously calls me. Right near to us was Simone Maiolini with his great Franciacorta, which points up another terrific advantage of these wine fairs: they make possible not only new business contacts, but new relationships as well with other producers, better knowledge of other aspects of wine, and other growing areas, and much good humour and exchanges of bon mots–even more than I can handle! See you next at Vinitaly, quite a different event altogether, very different…

We’d like to talk to you a bit about our Riné. Although it has changed over the years, we conceived Cantrina’s white wine--our distinctive blend of Riesling and Chardonnay, and a bit of other white varieties we grow here in our estate vineyards--as one that would evolve and mature with cellaring, offering its best even many years after bottling. We noticed, though, in the few years, that we were often forced to sell Riné too soon, and thus offering our customers a wine that was still inexpressive and therefore not fully appreciated for what it really was.

This edition will be a bridge between the just-ended summertime and 2021 events. Profumi di Mosto will also host twenty wineries, where rose wines and Valtènesi red wines will be protagonists.
