Tour of Southern Italy with Valentino Sciotti of Farnese Group

Join Valentino Sciotti for a tour of your senses. He will lead you on a delicious journey through the most beautiful regions of Southern Italy: Abruzzo, Basilicata, Sicily and Puglia. The name Farnese is one of Italy’s most illustrious. In Renaissance times, this noble family’s wines made scintillating appearances on the banquet tables of numerous European courts thanks to Princess Marguerite Farnese (née Marguerite of Austria, an Emperor’s daughter). In gratitude to the Farneses, successive owners maintained the ancient name on local labels.

Farnese wines, encompassing an ample range of terroirs and microclimates throughout many regions in Southern Italy. Joint owners, Valentino Sciotti and the late Camillo de Iuliis, describe the Farnese philosophy in two words: Progetto Qualità, which is a stringent series of quality criteria that provides the framework of every single stage in the process from vineyard to bottle. No one on the Farnese team, no matter how small his role in the total picture, can stray from these demanding standards. The team itself comprises a large group of young, dynamic wine professionals many of of whom had worked for some of the top wineries in France and southern Italy.” These winemakers are led by Filippo Baccalaro and technical consultant Professor Mario Ercolino and Alberto Antonini – not to mention top-notch agronomists like Remo di Giuliantonio. Research and development go side by side with this impressive quality set-up so they can preserve the rich history and tradition of southern Italian varietals while ensuring the wine is perfect for every person who enjoys a bottle.

The Jarvis Estate difference and why does "Estate" matter?

The Jarvis Estate winery in Napa Valley was founded with two related concepts in mind. The first was using only grapes grown on the property to make world class wines.  The second was to remove as many outside variables as possible and control the process from grape to delivery of the wine to the consumer. 

The Estate model, coupled with our unique hillside location have allowed us to make a consistent style of wine that perfectly shows the influence of place for the past 23 years.  The process handling all inputs then guarantees that outside factors do not put the wines at risk.  This seminar will go over what makes Jarvis Estate different and the proof is in the tasting of the wines.

Featured Wines:

·         2012 Finch Hollow Chardonnay

·         2010 Reserve Merlot

·         2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

·         2006 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

·         2008 Lake William
