This fall, we will be sourcing superior quality, frozen organic Italian DOCG grapes from Chianti: https://www.keystonehomebrew.com/frozen-docg-grapes-from-chianti/
Our partners in this venture, Vino Superiore, has arranged for Federico, the Italian enologist who has selected the grapes for us, to visit us here at Keystone Homebrew Supply this Saturday, August 20. Federico will share his experience with these grapes, details about the Chianti region where they are grown, and his overall winemaking expertise. Federico chose the five varieties for us in part to allow our customers to make their own authentic Chianti and Super Tuscan blends. He will discuss traditional blends and his personal recommendations, as well as the qualities of the individual varietals and the process of growing high quality organic grapes. He will also break down the mysterious Italian wine classification system and what it takes to achieve DOCG status. In addition, the Vino Superiore team will be on hand to explain the blast freezing process and the care and transportation of the grapes.
This is a unique opportunity to meet a prominent Italian winemaker of more than 15 years, and to learn about a fantastic new product that will be available at Keystone Homebrew Supply. We will have Italian wines and snacks available for tasting after the presentation. If you would like a guaranteed seat for the event, please RSVP by replying to this email. If you do not RSVP, you can still attend but there may not be a seat available for you. The event is FREE for everyone.
