HISTORIC VERTICAL TASTING CELEBRATING FATALONE’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY – NEW YORK, NOV 2 2018

We continue to celebrate! On Nov. 2nd, we held a second  (the first, in London) vertical tasting of our Fatalone Riserva in New York  City to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of our brand, Fatalone Organic Wines.  The event was held at Astor Center and was by invitation only. This event was also made possible with the help of Alice Feiring and our importers in New York. Ms. Feiring is an award-winning wine writer specializing in natural wines and editor of The Feiring Line, “The Natural Wine Newsletter”.

In a masterclass-style presentation, Pasquale Petrera,  Fatalone’s own 5th generation winemaker, poured 15 vintages of our Fatalone Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva dating back to 1988. The tasting panel included local and international press, sommeliers and trade. Some of our invitees were: Alice Feiring  of “The Feiring Line”, Jim Sligh of “Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels”, Oscar Wolf of “Chambers St Wines”, Mike Colameco of “Real Food, PBS”, Tara Thomas of “Wine & Spirits Magazine”, Levi Dalton of “I’ll Drink To That Podcast”, Catherine Todd of “Dame Wine” and Lorena Ascencios of “Astor Wines”.

 

 

Raw Wine 2018, 4-5th November in New York City

For the first time this year, we presented our Fatalone Organic Wines at Raw Wine 2018 in New York City.  RAW WINE brings together “over 140 of the world’s best low-intervention organic / biodynamic/natural wine growers.” We introduced all of Fatalone wines: Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva, Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo, Puglia IGT Primitivo “Teres” e il nostro vino bianco, Puglia IGT Greco “Spinomarino”.

To be a part of Raw Wine, our wines had to pass a strict selection process. Thankfully, Raw Wine Fair’s entry requirements are in complete agreement with our own philosophy of producing organic wines, using only our own hand-picked grapes, low levels of sulphites, spontaneous fermentation and sustainable practices without sacrificing quality and taste.

We were particularly proud to have been the only winery representing Puglia in this wonderful event.
