When first my lips caressed this Old World temptress, I realized in that very moment that I was entranced deeper than I could fathom. Passion ignited within my heart, and I knew my life was about to change in ways I never imagined possible.
…but what was I to tell my dear wife of 35 years?
The straight truth – I had fallen in love with Amarone style wines; a Northern Italian winemaking tradition whereby winemakers dry the grapes before they are transformed into wine.
From this unique appassimento process comes wines of incredible depth, richness and complexity.
Upon returning to Canada… I set my mind and passion upon seeing how the appassimento process would translate with grapes grown on home soil.
