Welcome to Episode 1715; part of our Italian wine interview series set in Bologna! Today’s interview features Davide Rho of Le Vigne di Zamò
Stevie Kim and her team traveled to the Bologna Slow Wine Fair in March 2023. There they conducted dozens of interviews with some of Italy's most inspiring producers. Join the fun every Thursday afternoon!
Tune-in each Thursday as we bring you the great interviews that unfolded over the course of 3 days.
More about today’s winery:
1924 – The Zamò family opened Osteria di Manzano, managed by Luigi, father of Tullio and grandfather of Pierluigi and Silvano
1978 – The start of the adventure of Le Vigne di Zamò. Tullio Zamò purchased five hectares of vineyard on Rocca Bernarda hill, and founded the Vigna del Leon estate.
2010 – Oscar Farinetti entered into partnership and, along with Pierluigi and Silvano, the decision was made to continue the work undertaken by Tullio, inspired by a passion for this land and an ancestral love of wine, with the aim of maintaining the family nature of the estate.
2021 – Making wine is a sign of civilisation and it strengthens the link between man and his land, his origins and tradition. By embracing this production philosophy, we manage our vineyards using natural methods, natural fertilisers like manure and humus, and keeping grass growth down mechanically. This approach led us to celebrate the first Certified ORGANIC harvest in 2021.
