For this International Women’s Day, 108th Anniversary celebration we thought we would introduce you to one remarkable woman in our field. She is Marilisa Allegrini, CEO of Allegrini, one of the most respected and highly acclaimed wineries of Italy. It is located in the storied wine growing region of Valpolicella. Allegrini is world-renowned in particular for their exceptional production of the iconic wine Amarone. She is known as the “Voice of Amarone” and been often described as a “Wine Star”.
Marilisa is the first Italian woman wine producer to grace the cover of one of the most respected and famous wine magazines in the world, The Wine Spectator. Since the early 1980’s Marilisa has been traveling the world sharing her passion for both the wines of Allegrini and the region of Valpolicella.
We had the opportunity to meet with the dynamic CEO of what today is regarded as one of the leading producers not only in this region but also in Italy as a whole.
We asked Marilisa to share with us the story behind Allegrini.
We learn that the Allegrini family has been involved with grape growing and winemaking since the 1500’s handing down grape growing and winemaking traditions over six generations.
Its roots lie in a small village Fumane de Valpolicella located just north of Verona. The family played a prominent role in the local community as one of the most important landowners, involved in agricultural work and upholding local traditions. “It was’, as she goes on to explain with great admiration, ”
how the intelligence and hard work of her father Giovanni an instinctive man with respect to the land and innovative winemaking practices was integral in earning the reputation Allegrini enjoys today”.

We’d like to welcome to the show a very special lady. Our show today is all about Valentine’s Day, about love, passion and of course chocolate. Our next guest is definitely passionate about her business, as the founder of Swiss Master Chocolatier Boutique, now celebrating its 34th year anniversary.
Having served her delectable stunning array of Swiss chocolates to many a celebrity as well as the likes of NASA astronauts and Bill Clinton. She is Ingrid Laderach- Steven. She is here to share with us a little about her store, her story and will fill us in on, Why is Swiss Chocolate considered the best in the world? Is it actually an aphrodisiac? How heart healthy is a daily dose?
Ingrid is originally from Switzerland, and the Swiss know their chocolate. Swiss Master Chocolatier imports high-quality Swiss truffles, pralines, and many other products directly from Switzerland almost every day. And unlike most chocolate, which is filled with preservatives to give it an unnaturally long shelf life, Swiss Masters’ chocolate is made with fresh ingredients. “Our products are made in Switzerland for the domestic market, which means our products use fresh cream and fresh butter,” says Ingrid.
“Each person who walks through our door gets a chocolate so that they feel better when they walk out,” says Ingrid. “If everybody had a piece of chocolate and thought of all the wonderful things in life, this world would be a better place.”
Ingrid has been applauded over the years with many honors including a feature on the cover of the New York based Women of Distinction Magazine. She is also this month being featured in the recently published America’s Leading Ladies Who Positively Impact our World… Stories of Courage, Challenge and Triumph.
The Wine Ladies visited Ingrid in her Swiss Master Chocolatier Boutique at 2538 Bayview Avenue, Toronto, Canada for a day of chocolate and wine tasting. Our wine of choice that day the recently release the Viticcio Morellino di Scansano 2015 available at VINTAGES # 574186, 750 mL bottle, $19.95 per bottle. Our truffles as recommended by Ingrid a milk mousse truffle, vanilla cream and hazelnut.

Chocolate and wine! The ideal couple. Start a love affair this Valentine's Day!
So for my wine pick I have selected a stunning wine just released the week in Vintages here in Ontario. It is the Viticcio Morellino di Scansano. I love it so much I already have picked up 8 bottles for my personal cellar. In keeping with the romantic theme during the month of February and Valentine’s Day, this wine is perfect for that. After all, the wine hails from the romantic region of Tuscany in which Florence is the capital. The beautiful bottle is even appointed with a black lace filagree to complete the romantic look.
This Tuscan beauty of a wine is a blend, made with the finest Sangiovese grapes, 85%, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. It is aged in small French oak barrels for 10-12 months and and in stainless steel for an additional 3-5 months.
Truly a beautiful wine, drinking amazing right now with potential to age for upwards of 5 – 8 years. An intense ruby red colour with seductive aroma of blackberries, and dark cherries, notes of dark chocolate with a velvety texture and good acidity, plenty to please your eyes and your palate! Perfect for Valentines Day and many more to come! Pick up a bottle or even better a few. Enjoy today, cellar a couple and experience and enjoy again as it evolves over time!

Up next on this week’s audio podcast we welcome just awarded the 2017 Niagara Lifetime Achievement Award, President and Co-Founder Cave Spring Cellars, Len Pennachetti. Although much too young for this honour it however shows what he has accomplished and given to the area.
Cave Spring Cellars goes back multiple generations starting with Len’s grand-dad Giuseppe Pennachetti. He came to Canada from Fermo, Italy. At that time he followed his love of wine and in time planted the native Labrusca grape. He however knew much more was possible!
Cave Spring Cellars is known for being among the first to plant the vitas vinifera grapes Riesling and Chardonnay. The vineyards are situated on one of the finest slopes of the Beamsville Bench. Len and his father founded Cave Spring Cellars in 1974 and planted these noble grapes in 1978.
Believing in the marriage of wine, food and hospitality, Len together with his wife Helen Young expanded the company to include On The Twenty Restaurant in 1993. In 1996 they and later added accommodations to the equation with building of Inn On The Twenty.
