Welcome to Episode 1783 and another installment of "On The Road Edition", hosted by Stevie Kim. Today’s episode features an Instalive throwback during Christmas holiday, featuring José Rallo from Donnafugata winery

Passito wines represent a niche production in the Italian wine sector, they are often consumed only on special occasions or during family meals when they are typically combined with the dessert course. Seven women producers from all over Italy will join us for this series, to discuss their Passito wines and recommend the perfect pairing with a typical Christmas dish from their region, sharing personal memories linked to the Christmas holidays and wine.

She is committed to the eco-sustainable and cultural development of her territory: from energy savings to the production of energy from renewable sources, up to the certification of the carbon-footprint; for 20 years she has supported the Scuola Normale di Pisa in archaeological excavations in Sicily and financed the “Giuseppe Nenci” Study Award.

José Rallo innovated the style of wine communication with the "Donnafugata Music & Wine Live", proposing as a producer and solo voice multisensory experiences of wine and music that have given rise to three CDs and memorable concerts at the Blue Note in Milan and New York, Beijing, Shanghai and Moscow, and at the Acropolis Museum in Athens, also raising funds to support solidarity initiatives.
