A game to find the intruder wine: such a fun and challenging idea. This is the annual meeting of the winery “Oppida Aminea” belonging to Archipelago Muratori a group that produces some of the well-known Italian wines in each region of origin: the reds in Tuscany, sparkling wine in Franciacorta, sweet wine on Ischia island and whites, ops the … “yellow wines ” -as they used to define them- in Benevento, Campania region – south of Italy.
So this is a communication game invented by the young Michela who, regardless of age, is young for the freshness of her ideas!
This time we are in a historic building in the city of Benevento, we are divided into teams and we are ready to taste blindly (i.e.the bottles are covered- read what it means here); there are 4 batteries of white wines from Campania wine region: Falanghina, Fiano, Greco, Coda di Volpe. Each battery consists of 3 wines from 3 different companies, 2 are produced in Benevento area where we are, the other one … is the intruder!
Even if we know the territories and their differences, at the table we are incredulous, we realize the difficulties, despite the help of the various producers Michela has engaged in this edition. I am at the table with some other friends who work in the wine industry and we discuss with light tone despite the need to vote in a couple of occasions.
But we made it! We won, we could not believe it: 4 of 4! Wonderful. The awards are wines of course! An opportunity like few others,it is nice to meet people like that, congratulations to Michela, her wines and the Archipelago Muratori.
I premi sono i nostri amati vini per cui niente di meglio.
Un’occasione come poche, che bello incontrare persone così, complimenti a Michela e all’Arcipelago Muratori e i loro ottimi vini.
