"Wine makes all things possible." George R. R. Martin, the Mystery Knight
We arrived at the winery in Cupramontana, the capital of the Castelli dei Jesi DOC, around noon. There a complex of diverse buildings, including a very large red and white stripped silo, boast panoramic views to the sea. Cristina directed us to the cantina where we met Emiliano, the Export Director, who would be our tour guide. Our first stop on the tour was the warehouse. Here large quantities of wine were boxed and ready for distribution, but this was merely a diversion along the way to the cellars. A room sized elevator took us down under the warehouse to a naturally temperature controlled place. It's arched ceiling and mood lighting created an atmosphere of peace and harmony. In this tranquil room the wines relax until they are ready for consumption.
Live and learn and enjoy some Italian sparkling wine.
