La Dama: “2014, a Challenging Harvest”

But we are very proud of our work in the fields Valpollicella will definitely remember Summer 2014! We will remember it for the absolutely unusual weather conditions and for the temperature that stayed below average for the entire season. What did we do, here at La Dama, in our vineyards?

No need to say that continuous

Fregolotta

La Dama: “Recioto and Fregolotta, so delicious!”

A perfect pairing for a wine with such a gently complex flavor It looks like the “Fregolotta” cake originated in Treviso, one of Veneto major Towns, at the beginning of last century. It soon became so popular that it spread, as a traditional cake, to the entire Veneto Region and also parts of Trentino. The consistency of the dough is mealy and that is where the name comes from: “fregoe” in dialect means crumbs. We have tasted it at La Dama Winery and have enjoyed it sipping on a good glass of La Dama Recioto DOCG The origins of the

La Dama: “Visiting the winery with guests from Mexico!”

This past week we received a visit from our Importer in Mexico. With them we made a nice tour of all the interior and exterior spaces, starting from this porch and including this tunnel. In this area we have created a space where, when the season is suitable, a portion of the grapes, after harvest, is placed to dry in the open air to dry using the winds that occur naturally due to the design of the space. The tents that you see above the arch, and that are located all around the porch, are used to regulate the passage
