Ben van Beurten and Martin Woestenburg around Ca'Palazzo
In Fratte Rosa We are already met by Martina already busy with the next group, because we were a bit exits. We knew that Paolo the owner would be this day in Citta di Castello at the Food Festival which was planned for us for the next day. But his father and mother, the 10 year mayor of the village had been, the honors were more than perceiving. Family was 200 year tied to the pottery village and had earned money in furniture. Working with local people and products as much as possible is the starting point for them, as they also made the furniture locally. Their son Paolo was therefore fully supported to the family vineyard and a new professional life in the blow. The old vines were far apart and had to be 25 bunches per vine. Far too many to make good wine, not to mention the outdated production technology. Between these two old stumps were each 2 newly planted and which now provides their basic wine. For Ca'Palazzo a favorite house wines. In addition, there 12 hectares replanted.
6 years ago it was time to also modernize the entire production that could be worked on wine quality. They do this by opverschillende moments, up to 5 occasions, manually picking. The oenologist before they hire is sometimes daily with them at the kitchen. The wine is imported by Uvinum (the current discount for a very nice price) and as with Guerrieri I would still like some of the story of their leave.
