Looking back at this time of the year, great memories start to flood back to one of our best and most fun events The Wine Ladies created for our guests. We do have an adventurous and fun loving group of friends and followers. Grape Stomping Mad About Malbec event. (2013)

One of Italy’s many claims to fame, is of course their very own sparkling wine, growing in popularity day by day. Not only is it a wine, but it is a place, and it is a grape and there is a bit of confusion out there about this delightful and delicious bubbly and that is Prosecco. There is much more to this bubbly, with an interesting history, than many might know. We are excited to share with everyone at the show a very special winery, located in the Friuli region in northeastern Italy, the wine Castel Pitars winery. Here is a wine producer that dates back to 1510, steeped in tradition, now run by four brothers producing an exciting array of wines, along with their Prosecco, wines of indigenous grapes, international varietals and unique blends. Pitars Wines imported and distributed exclusively by VDF Importers of Fine Wines.
