Abruzzo

 Abruzzo is a region I’ve fallen in love with through my friendship with the family of Emidio Pepe in Turano Nuovo. His granddaughter, Chiara, introduced me to Stefano Papetti Ceroni who makes the De Fermo wines and we’ve collaborated on this project. Stefano’s winery is located in Loreto Aprutino the same town where Valentini produces his excellent wines. The wine regions of Abruzzo sit between the coast of the Adriatic sea and the Appenine mountain range – neither of which ever seem more than a 30 minute drive away. Given its unique location, and ideal exposition, this area is ideal for the production of expressive, high quality wine. Recently, there has been a surge in quality winemaking amongst small producers in this region. Although they are still among the minority, I am excited to work closely with one of these talented producers.
