Exploring Klinker Brick Winery

Host: Julie Handle

Great wine begins with a suitable climate and soil, both of which are found in Lodi.  Sandy Loam soil coupled with the hot, cold exchange that graces Lodi from day to night creates a utopic environment to cultivate warm-weather varietals including Zinfandel, Cabernet and Syrah.

The Felten Family own and manage fifteen individual vineyard blocks of “Old Vine” Zinfandel that range in age from 40 to 120 years old.

The Feltens and Klinker Brick have one goal…produce world-class wine.

Exploring Tre Monti Wines

Host: Natalie D’Alessandro Volpe

From Emilia-Romagna Italy Tre Monti traces its origins back to the early 1960s with the inspiration of Sergio Navacchia and of his wife Thea, who for years was the real driving force behind the winery until her death in 1989.

The heart of the winery lies in the center of the farm estate in Imola, where only estate-grown grapes are vinified. All of the vineyards are managed according to the principles of sustainable viticulture, which mandate inter-row cover-cropping and the lowest possible use of unnatural products.

All of this so that the final wine is the perfect expression of everything around its environment. Tre Monti became certified organic in 2014.

About Natalie:

Natalie D’Alessandro Volpe is a Wine Broker  of fine Italian wines for NDV Wine Agents, LLC.

Natalie currently represents a portfolio of exceptional wine varietals from regions throughout Italy, including Emilia Romagna, Piedmont, Tuscany, Lombardy, Veneto and Puglia.  She works primarily with small family owned vineyards that practice sustainable and organic farming, and enjoys introducing her clients to grapes that are obscure and or indigenous to the region.  In addition to her wine brokerage, Natalie is certified as an Italian Wine Specialist through the North American Sommelier Association, and conducts staff training, wine dinners and educational talks and seminars.
