Grape grower, vineyard tender, winemaker and bottler, and salesman are all titles that jack-of-all-trades Franco Penna carries. Penna, now in his thirty-second year of running the small estate of Casina Barisel, is a man who is truly in charge of his own destiny. Penna learned from his father to love and respect the land and he walks-the-walk of an environmentally-conscious farmer using no chemical fertilizers or insecticides. His naturally-made ‘Foravía’ is all Favorita, also known as Vermentino.  Balanced and crowd-pleasing, lemon pith and fresh apple shine brightly with minerality and weight, while remaining wonderfully refreshing. So grab a rocking chair, sit back and enjoy.

Pairings:
Lemon-basil pesto flatbread with cherry tomatoes and ricotta
