Episode 665 Marc Millon interviews Matilde Poggi in this episode of Italian Food & Wine with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About today’s guest:
Matilde has been an independent winegrower in Cavaion Veronese, on the eastern shore of Lake Garda, since 1984. The winery is organically farmed.
“I love the countryside all around me, the land that has been my companion every moment of my life: Monte Baldo rising up so majestically to the north, Lake Garda with its uniquely Mediterranean climate, the Valdadige that conveys the cools winds from the north.
I love this earth, every square metre of it somehow different, brought here by the glaciers that carved out, in remotest times, the the bed of the lake and the valley of the Adige river.
Everything that I do in the vineyard is aimed at respecting and preserving those unique and literally incomparable qualities that
I find only in my wines”.
