The Vincast with Giuseppe Russo from Girolamo Russo Wines

https://player.whooshkaa.com/episode?id=745047

Growing up, Giuseppe Russo didn’t have much interest in the vineyards his farther and grandfather lovingly tended on the northern slopes of Mt Etna, particularly as the wine they made in the cellar under their house was being sold as bulk wine. He followed his passion for music, studying in nearby Catania then nurturing young musicians as a teacher, the same way his father Girolamo tended the family vines. When Giuseppe’s father passed away suddenly he made the decision to honour him by not only taking over the family contrade, but also starting his own project, naming the label after Girolamo. Initially working closely with neighbouring farmers who knew these soils and vines intimately, and with recent arrivals in the region like Frank Cornelisson and Andrea Franchetti, in the last fifteen years Giuseppe has become one of the regions most celebrated wine producers.

The Vincast with Vanessa Altmann from Switch Wine

Vanessa Altmann has worked at Temple Bruer in Langhorne Creek for many years and has been very influenced by their approach to organic viticulture. Not long ago she began to buy some parcels of fruit for herself, crafting them into very unique and contemporary styles of wine under the Switch Wine name. She joined me on this special bonus episode of The Vincast recently, and she also showed me some of the new releases for my YouTube channel IntrepidWino.
