Produttori Etna Nord: On Mount Etna Small is Beautiful

On the scenic slopes of Sicily's Mount Etna on the northern side of the volcano in Castiglione is Produttori Etna Nord - an association of five small family producers that have united to share the indigenous varietals of the region with the rest of the world. Though the wineries are in close proximity to one another and have a common winemaker, the variations in the terroir allow for differences in their grapes and wine styles.

Istria: Wine Across Borders
08 August 2022 19:24
Istria: Wine Across Borders

“My family has lived in the same house for over a century, yet the last four generations have had four different passports,” explains Croatian winemaker Ivica Matošević. He lives in the heart of Istria, the largest peninsula in the Adriatic and a region that has often been tied up in a political tug-of-war. Istria has been ruled by the Venetian Republic, the Habsburg monarchy, Napoleon, the Austrian empire, Italy, and Yugoslavia. Today, nearly 90% of the zone falls into Croatia (which itself joined the EU in 2013), while smaller parts of it lie in Slovenia, and there is a tiny portion in Italy close to Trieste. This may explain why people in this area see themselves as Istrian first and foremost, attached to fixed geography rather than changing political identity. Boštjan Zidar, the chief winemaker at Vinakoper in Slovenia, confirms this, saying, “Every Istrian feels first that Istria is home. Then you can talk about Croatian, Slovenian, and Italian people. Politicians make borders, which make barriers, but the people who live here—their friendships, love, and wine—can always win over these borders.” This also may be why Istrian identity allows better cooperation between winemakers across national borders than is common in this part of Europe. This regional update will focus on Istria’s geography, grapes, viticulture, and winemaking, considering what is shared between Croatia and Slovenia, and what is different.

Why wines from the Greek island of Santorini are so unique

The wines of Santorini are rapidly becoming recognised as the world class wines they are. The Greek island of Santorini may be small but its reputation is massive on a global scale and rapidly increasing. But why are these wines so unique? What is it about the soil, climate, grape varieties and viticultural techniques that make these wines so distinctive and worth seeking out?

A World Without Italian Wine

A World Without Italian Wine

Who among us could imagine a world without wine from Italy? Well, I’m sure there are those teetotalers who have and do. And there are those for whom alcohol is an addiction, and they as well could, and should, imagine such. But for those of us who are not controlled by alcoholic urges and for whom wine is a safe and healthy accompaniment to our meals and our friendships, wine no longer from Italy is unthinkable.

Greenest Wine Region In Europe And Its White Wine, A Favorite Among Sommeliers

Greenest Wine Region In Europe And Its White Wine, A Favorite Among Sommeliers

The sounds of crying, desperate prayers and the unhinged ramblings of people on the verge of madness faded into the background as the cover of night helped to lull the wounded “traitor” to sleep. As he dreamt, he was transported to the soothing sounds of the sea then his dream would quickly transport him to a lush forest accompanied by sounds of the breeze rustling through the trees until finally, his dreaming state settled into a place where he would experience the best sounds of all: his family harvesting wine grapes in their vineyards. But within a blink of an eye, he woke as the sun began to rise and the door of the cattle car, which he was shoved into the day before, was being opened. More people were being pushed into the car until it was at about 200% capacity with people gasping for air and as the people were crushed into the “traitor”, a stabbing pain reminded him of his cracked ribs that were a parting gift from the Nazi soldiers who initially forced him into the cattle car the day before.

From Santorini to the world

From Santorini to the world

Assyrtiko, the characteristic grape of the hauntingly firm, fumy dry whites of the volcanic Greek island of Santorini, is an obvious example of a lesser-known grape variety that, once tasted, is never forgotten. It magically combines something saline and mineral with something citrus as well as tension and a magical ability to develop even more complexity in bottle even though growing seasons in its homeland are notoriously hot, almost impossibly dry, and inhospitably windy.
