FRANCESCOVINI WINE CLUB
The passion for wine began at the age of 7 during my first grape harvest with my uncles in the splendid Tuscan hillside of Montepulciano. I still remember the joy I felt as a child riding the tractor for the first time, going into the vineyard and cutting my first bunch of grapes, the excitement while crushing those same grapes together with my cousins using our feet, but above all i remember the aroma of the wine. The aroma that envelops you, that penetrates your nostrils and travels deep into your lungs, the scent that remains imprinted in your brain and is immediately recognizable every time you return to the cellar.
Many years have passed since that first experience and over the countless harvests and experiences tasting I have realized that the art of making wine is just that, an art. I was lucky enough to have as an educator not only for wine but for life, a wonderful mentor and friend, Daniel Thomases who from the time I was 18 taught me how to appreciate the best wines from all over Italy. He taught me how to taste, to distinguish numerous varietals of grapes and enlightened me to the hundreds of small wineries, mainly family owned that take meticulous care in their work from the cultivation in the vineyard to the selection of the bunches, from fermentation to ageing, culminating in beautiful bottles that I look forward to sharing with you.
