Zoom Tasting: Contratto Winery with Elisa Musso, Export Manager

December 04, 2020, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Join us for a virtual tasting of sparkling wine, Vermouth’s & Cocktails!

About the Winery: Founded in 1867, Contratto is Italy’s oldest Metodo Classico house. It is based in Canelli, Piedmont and boasts impressive underground cellars and 45 hectares of vines. Giorgio Rivetti of La Spinetta purchased Contratto in 2011, thus adding sparkling wines, vermouth’s and bitters to his production line. The vines are located in Alta Langa, and some plantings of Pinot Nero extend up to 850 meters above sea level. Contratto makes about 200,000 bottles per year, and this is seriously some of the best sparkling wine found in Italy distinguished by the distinctive Art Deco designs on the bottle.
