Mario Andrion from Castello di Verduno

I spent much of my time in Italy visiting and chatting with winemakers in the region. As you may know I am a huge fan of the wines of Verduno and the wineries in the village are allays on my agenda. My first stop this year was with the Castello di Verduno Winery where I tasted with winemaker Mario Andrion.

While chatting in the Massara vineyard we spool of the difference between Massara and Monvigliero as well as the Faset and Rabaja crus of Barbaresco which are also bottled by Costello di Verduno. There's nothing I like more on these visits than talking with these winemakers about their wines and the region, now you get to listen in!

    Haha. The interviews are fun. Thanks. I spent some time in the Piedmont region in 2009 and my two favourite wines were: 1) out of a juice box at a hiking refuge; and 2) the house wine at Catello di Pavone. I never got to find out which winery they were from but I remember the flavours well. Yes. The hand gestures do say it all.
