Guest-Moderator
“I am relatively new to wine, having stumbled into it by default. I recently returned to bartending after a stretch of years teaching then followed by having two children. Bartending in the food/wine industry offered the chance to re-enter the work world in the evenings while allowing time to be with children in the day. The opportunity to work with wine again sparked a curiosity and an itch to learn more and more about it. Although I intended bartending to be a stop-gap measure of a job until I could return to full-time classroom teaching, the realization occurred that the food and wine industry is a pursuit where complete satisfaction could be gained by pouring wine and making people incredibly happy. Thoughts of starting to build a new career in wine began to percolate.
When people look back on their lives, one common regret is not having done the things we wish we had. And with a window of a handful of years until I had planned to return to the teaching profession, the decision to change course and take a leap into the wine world was joyfully made.” (Peggy Baudon)

About today’s guest producer:
Francesca Accornero represents the 6th generation of winemakers of Accornero. Her family’s winery is located in the beautiful commune of Vignale Monferrato in the province of Alessandria, between the Tanaro River and Po River. They farm over 30 hectares of land and produce a range of wines: from Malvasia di Casorzo, Freisa, Barbera, and others which, of course include Grignolino.

Francesca and her family have been very successful with this difficult grape – described as an ‘anarchist’ grape by Luigi Veronelli. Accornero’s work with Grignolino has obviously solved the puzzle of this difficult grape.
Ian D’Agata describes Accornero’s Bricco del Bosco Grignolino as “a spectacular wine… that showcases the variety’s many charms. It is refined, lifted and perfumed: or in a word, beautiful. It is light on its feet but penetratingly precise… exactly what a Grignolino should be about.”
