VDF Wines Gives You Pitars

On this week’s radio show…

Lavish lifestyle with prize Pitars Prosecco, Preferred Magazine and Executive Chef from OVEST.

Coming up on our show today, 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.

Episode 46: Pitars Prosecco;Nicola Pittaro, Danylo Mielnik, Carlo Greco

There is much more to this bubbly, with an interesting history, than many might know. So in our first segment we are excited to share with everyone today a very special winery, located in the Friuli region in northeastern Italy, the wine Castel Pitars winery.

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.

My discovery, the Pitars Prosecco DOC made from a fourth generation, historic and stunning winery located in Friuli. This Prosecco  is lively with zesty fruits and floral notes and  of course, BONUS  its affordability at just  $17.25 per bottle. It’s pretty exclusive too as its not sold through the LCBO but is available exclusively by the case (6) here in Ontario through www.VDFwines.com.

So I an kicking Spring off is style with my Pitars Prosecco!

Spring fever is finally upon us and I wanted to kick of the season in style! What better way to celebrate than with a beautiful glass of bubbly. Although I do enjoy a glass of Champagne from time to time its not always in my budget. Therefore,I searched out for one of the most popular bubblies out there and that is of course Prosecco.

We know, this sparkling wine must come exclusively from one of two wine growing regions in north eastern Italy.

The two regions are  Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. In fact the name comes from the Italian village of Prosecco near Trieste. It is also the name of the wine and was until recently the name of the grape. Due to a change in regulation in 2009  the “Glera” grape which is a long standing synonym for Prosecco was officially recognized as the proper grape name used to identify this iconic Italian export.

$17.25 per bottle (case of 6). Available through VDF Wines & Spirits.

Episode 44

 Here we are again, on the cusp of the 6th Annual #MalbecWorldDay coming up on April 17th on which there will be tons of tastings, events and parties all going on around the globe, honoring this luscious, spicily rich, very delish red grape!
We’ve decided to honour the Malbec grape once again, as well as the country that has become synonymous with Malbec, just as Shiraz is to Australia, Sauvignon Blanc to New Zealand and Carmenere to Chile, Malbec is to Argentina!
