Interview with Stella di Campalto


Just a few days in and I managed to steal down to Piacenza to attend a ‘natural wine’ fair (as in low sulphur dioxide levels) and snatched a quick video interview with Stella di Campalto, presenting her new ’04 Brunello; that was prior to announcing her intention to follow the holy order (or I think that’s what she said…):

When not grappling with ever remoter wireless access, or attending wine fairs, my cloistered existence has revolved round Serralunga’s hub, ‘Centro Storico’.  Owned by wine fiend (and now friend) Alessio and his wife (and chef) Stefania, this hive of fine food and wine is patronised by merchants and producers from all over, each one coaxed to tell their tale.  A fascinating place.
