If there are areas where we can improve please let us know. For example, one attentive listener pointed out that we were not on Stitcher (thank you!), and we were able to follow up and make the connection. Also, we hear that background noise can get a bit distracting in some episodes. We’ll work on our post production skills to improve sound quality, but sometimes, in order to catch an interview, we have to record in conditions that are not ideal for background noise. Feel free to use our survey form although, if you want us to know immediately how badly we pronounced Mourvèdre, your ALL CAPS TWEET will get here sooner! We welcome all of it, especially the fire-Producer-J-and-bring-back-Giulia messages!

Ep. 261 Ondine de la Feld (Tenuta di Tavignano) on European Influences and Marche Traditions

Ondine de la Feld of Tenuta di Tavignano takes time out from wine2wine 2019 to speak with Monty Waldin and help us understand the wines that come from “le terrazze delle Marche,” or the stage that looks out from the Apennine Mountains toward the Adriatic Sea. Ondine paints a vivid picture of how the physical landscape coupled with calcareous and argillaceous soils help produce special wines, such as Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Rosso Piceno, near the town of Cingoli, Italy. She tells her story with a backdrop of Picene and Roman influences and we learn why the Marche of present day is a hotspot of organic agriculture, biodynamic wines, and cooperatives that add value to the region. Listen in to find out why Gambero Rosso rates Tenuta di Tavignano’s Misco.
