Bardolino

For our next tasting we will be introducing you to the lovely wines from Bardolino.  The Bardolino DOC is located between the base of Lake Garda to the west and the hills of Valpolicella to the east.  The primary grapes used in production are Corvina, Rondinella , and Molinara.  These are the same grapes that are used in making the famous wines of Valpolicella.  However the two wines are very different.  Bardolino is a softer more finesse wine than its fuller bodied cousin. 

I had the pleasure of meeting Matilde Poggi a few months ago and tasted four of her wines.  The wines are perfect these hot Summer days.  Her grapes are all estate grown organically and fermented into stainless steel tanks.  

We Will be Tasting 4 Wines
