Soave, Veneto Italië, 25 Jul 2017
We want to share our love of wine with you. You should know that wine plays an important role in our culinary life. We are continually searching for fine wines, and preferably ones with a story. These wines form the basis of our gastronomic events.
I try to visit wineries a few times a year, it helps understand the wine and particularly the wine makers. I'm often impressed by the passionate dedication and patience with which they perform their craft. Admirable!
During one of my trips in the northern Italian province of Veneto, I visited the beautiful family business Pieropan. This business is located in the heart of the picturesque town of Soave. The walk from the outskirts of the city to the old town alone is an experience. To me, the Italians are life artists. They take food and drink very seriously. The Pieropan business is an example of this. A variety of beautiful wines are created in Pieropan, but I would like to share my love for their Soave Classico and in particular the Magnum bottle.
Whilst there I met Leonildo Pieropan's (this man is seen as the 'Godfather' of Soave) grandson. The grandson, who is also called Leonildo has bought about a real revolution. Thanks to the combination of his dedication and competence, the domain became the reference and the appellation was given quite a quality boost.
The Pieropan Soave is bright, crisp & aromatic, it is light yellow with a green tinge and creates a pleasant tingling in the nose. From almond blossom to pear to citrus fruit and from delicate acids to light bitter notes. The white pearl has a rich palate and is wonderfully refined with beautiful minerals. A true celebration of spring.
Are you tempted by this or another splendid wine? Out team of wine-fanatics like to look for wines that fit the location or the occasion of your event. Where we will of course take care of the tastiest culinary creations.
