Today, Dr. C. and I fired up the Alfa, drove south for a tour and tasting at the Ferrari winery in Trento.
In 1952, without an heir to take over the business, he selected a small wine store owner in Trento to take over his winery, Bruno Lunelli. Bruno expanded the winery, the vineyards, and the soul of the business, and now it is in the capable hands of the 3rd generation of the Lunelli family.
All the Ferrari labels are Trentodoc, an appellation for white and rosé sparkling wine made in Trentino Alto Adige. The vines are grown at a high altitude using sustainable and certified organic farming methods.
We arrived, and were shown the stainless steel tanks, the aging rooms, and then were show the bottling process. As the wines age, they are hand-turned to ensure perfect bubbles.
