Portland’s Division Wines Offers a Loredan Gasparini Flight with Owner Lorenzo Palla
Division Wine’s owner Will Prouty says:
“This historic estate is located in the hills, approximately 50 km north of Venice and has been producing wine since the 1300s. It’s a region with a long history of producing, in addition to serious Prosecco, some of the great red wines of northern Italy. It’s a unique area, in that the grapes planted there are more commonly associated with the region of Bordeaux in France. On the estate of Venegazzù, the red wines are made from vines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. The white label blend is a beautiful example of balance, and finesse. The black label, "Capo di Stato," is a deep and serious wine, legendary in the area, and capable of aging for decades. Both will be included on Thursday along with a very special Prosecco, Cuvèe Indigene. Lorenzo is a charming and enthusiastic champion of the region. All of the ferments are native and Lorenzo is a very informative advocate to the benefits of this practice in their circumstance. A special flight of three of their wines will be available for $15 from 6 to 8pm. I hope that you can find the time to join us.”
