Welcome to Episode 1857 and another installment of "On The Road Edition", hosted by Stevie Kim. Today’s episode presents an Instalive throwback during Christmas holiday, featuring Violante Gardini Cinelli Colombini

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.
