Traditional Lambrusco, Demeter certified

We’re still trying to figure out how Enea, who founded and still runs the Coop and community of La Collina finds time to do it all. When he’s not taking care of the livestock, or the fruit and adults from his community with drug addictions. When he is not doing these activities he is traveling to South America, and soon, other regions to help other cooperatives set up a functioning business as he has with La Collina. OR, we can find him working closely with Biodynamic pioneer and Demeter founder Alex Podelinsky on a project to create and design handmade machines that will help BD farming become more accessible and practical to a wider group of agriculturists of all types. Finally, somehow, there is still time for him to make wine with the help of a friend and producer at a nearby cellar. A traditional Lambrusco that reminds us why the Emilia Romagna region of italy is so famous for it’s love of food and wine. It seems Lambrusco is making a comeback, and for good reason… the acidity of this wine, combined with the bubbles can wash down perfectly the buttery sauce of any pasta, and stand up to rich meats at the same time. It is a perfect food wine… and has existed more or less as we know it today since 1567.
