While I was in Irpinia, Campania (southern Italy) earlier this year, I got to spend an afternoon and dinner with Antonio Capaldo, Chairman and mastermind behind Feudi di San Gregorio, the largest and one of the highest quality producers in the region. This episode recaps a lot of the really interesting conversations we had about the steady traction the region has gained in terms of reputation, the culture of art and how it connects with the wine, the bond of this region to its incredible past, and the challenges of being in a region that not enough people know about.
We discuss the potential for Irpinia to be known as a top white wine region in the world and how it will get there.
For all the background on Antonio and Feudi, please listen to Episode 337 and then come back to this show to dig into some of the fascinating issues producers face when they have everything going for them, and yet still have a hard time getting their wines to us. This should be an eye-opener!
