Welcome to Episode 1741 in which host McKenna Cassidy interviews Luigi di Majo Norante this week on The Next Generation where young Italian wine people 30 and under shake up the wine scene.
More about today’s winery:
Di Majo Norante has been making wine from grapes ever since 19th century, as is evidenced by the old cellars underneath the square and in the old family building at Campomarino. Commitment to grape growing was inherited first of all by Luigi and then by Alessio Di Majo and continues today alongside research and experimentation. Di Majo Norante produces its own wines from grapes grown in the 123 hectare vineyard of the ancient fief of Marquises Norante di Santa Cristina. Di Majo Norante wine-making philosophy is consistent with a traditional approach to grape growing and wine production, centred on preserving all the characteristics of Mediterranean wine-making.
