This episode has Sarah Bray of Batonnage Forum interviewing Barbara Widmer of Brancaia Winery.
The famed rolling hillsides of Tuscany are home to Brancaia, an acclaimed wine estate celebrating their 40th vintage. Founded and owned by the Widmer family, their devotion to the land and winery has set the foundation of Brancaia for generations to come. For more than 22 years, their daughter, winemaker Barbara Widmer, has lived and worked among Brancaia’s exceptional estate vineyards. Barbara embraces a philosophy that it takes years for vines to truly connect with the soil to produce grapes with the most typicity and quality. She treats the land with sensitivity, giving vines the time and attention to achieve their highest expression. By respecting nature and working with older vines, the signature of each of Brancaia’s three Tuscan estates reflects their true terroir.
