A producer of natural wines and farmhouse/old world style ales and lagers — you may be familiar with them already from the NYC market. They make amazing sparkling wines and do some gypsy brewing on Long Island and also have a little project going just outside of Aosta, Italy. In the small community of Canavese, the Cantina Cantina team (who demurred on any notion of being mentioned individually by name) bought grapes from old vineyards. What we have here is a a fresh and transparent interpretation of macerated Erbaluce.
