News from Fattoria Poggio Alloro

Just like every year, we are now completely immersed in the new harvest. This year we have had beautiful weather so far, a great combination of sun and rain, so the grapes are healthy and juicy.
It seems that it’s going to be an amazing year for wine and our future is full of exciting things!
A new wine cellar, new barrels, new wines and many other things.

This fall I will be ready for a new tour and the next adventure for the promotion of our wines, farm, recipes and my cook book “A Family Farm in Tuscany”.
I am very happy to let you know that last year my book, “A Family Farm in Tuscany” won the gold medal at the Living Now Book awards and this May it won two Silver Medals at the Benjamin Franklin awards in New York City.

Here is my tour schedule for November 2013:

I will be in Los Angeles briefly for a meeting with my new wine importer for California.
We are very happy to announce that our wine will be available for sale in California by the end of November.

I would like to give a little reminder about our wines.
You can find it in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Illinois and soon in California.
For more information about wine availability in California please email questions to info@epitomewines.com.
We can also ship daily from the farm! Contact us at info@fattoriapoggioalloro.com
