Winemaker Tasting with Loredana Addari from Podere Ruggeri Corsini in Piedmont, Italy

Podere Ruggeri Corsini was started by Nicola Argamante and Loredana Addari in 1995. The two fell in love while at the University of Turin, where Loredana was getting a post-graduate degree in viticulture, and Nicola a PhD in oenology. They now have 25 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards, and practice sustainability in all their operations, from a solar powered tasting room to using lightweight bottles to reduce carbon footprint. And they produce wonderful Piedmont wines, including an old vine Barbera from Monforte d'Alba - the village famous for (and normally reserved for) the production of Barolo - and a Barolo from Bussia, one of finest vineyards in Monforte d’Alba.
