Join us next Saturday May 5th as Vignetocomm hosts #ItalianFWT with Benvenuto #Vermentino. This is a wonderful versatile grape that grows in Liguria, Tuscany, and Sardinia in Italy, as well as Corsica, France and the United States, among others. Often in Liguria, the vineyards are incredibly steep. This type of heroic viticulture is seen throughout this small region.
Vermentino grows happily in some amazingly beautiful places. It does very well near the sea and is a favorite all around the Mediterranean. Is it the same grape as Pigato? Favorita? Rolle? Are there differences? Let’s explore these themes together and learn more about this great grape.
Pick out a bottle or two and join the Italian Food Wine and Travel Group as we expand our knowledge about Vermentino. It’s a wonderful wine for spring and summer and pairs well with almost anything or as an apertif. We’ll be posting and chatting about our findings on Saturday May 5.
If you have a blog and would you like to join us, just send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll be looking for blog post titles no later than Tuesday, May 1. We post early on Saturday May 5 and chat on Twitter at #ItalianFWT from 11:00-12:00pm EST.
If you’ve visited Liguria, Sardinia or Tuscany or anywhere else Vermentino grows, we’d love to hear about your experience in the region and something special you found there. We’re all ears (or eyes)!
