SABATO 4 SETTEMBRE: ART, WINE AND NATURE
GARDENIA RESTAURANT IN CALUSO
“ART, WINE AND NATURE”
SATURDAY 4 SEPTEMBER 2021
A day to discover the area where Erbaluce is born.
Caluso is a very ancient community, built on a pre-Roman settlement. Its history is rich and eventful, as evidenced by the few but significant buildings that survived the complex historical events, such as the Rocca, the castellazzo and the Porta Crealis. After the visit to the Medieval Caluso and the wonderful panorama that can be enjoyed from Castellazzo, we will meet Ilaria Salvetti, who will guide us on an educational tour of its vineyards. Ilaria’s company was born in 2012, when he takes over the business started by his father, renovating old vineyards and buying new land. At the beginning it focuses exclusively on the production of Caluso Passito DOCG carrying on the family tradition. However, it also pursues the protection of the environment, the territory and the landscape, obtaining the Organic Certification from the Icea body in 2016. Since 2014 it has also produced the Erbaluce di Caluso Spumante DOCG classic method and from the 2017 harvest the first still white Erbaluce di Caluso DOCG was born. During the tour we will also go to the discovery of the spontaneous vine herbs that are born in September, thanks to the favorable climate, with our ethnobotanist Lucia Papponi. The morning will continue the tasting in the vineyard of Ilaria’s organic wines with a Wild aperitif in combination created by Mariangela.
Lunch with spontaneous herbs menu in the greenhouse of the Gardenia Restaurant.
