This week, I had the distinct pleasure to speak with Piero Mastroberardino, 10th generation owner of the famed winery Mastroberardino in Campani, Italy. A leader of the region, with a history of preserving the recent and distant past, Piero and his father Antonio have been strong voices in the wine scene of Campania since the 1940s. Working with grapes from the Hellenic and Latin side of the culture in ancient Italy, there is probably no other winery with such a strong connection to the wines and the land of the ancient times as Mastroberardino. We will be publishing some tasting notes ont er current releases in the coming weeks, but these are exciting wines, unlike any other grapes from any other regions. And what is perhaps understated here, is these are grapes that may play an event more important role in vineyards around the world as the temperature in the atmosphere continues to rise due to climate change.
Check out the winery website here to see all of the wines and learn more about their fantastic production.
