Ep. 150 Monty Waldin interviews Aldo Vacca (Produttori del Barbaresco)
In this episode Monty Waldin interviews Aldo Vacca, General Manager of the Produttori del Barbaresco coop. Produttori del Barbaresco now comprises 54 farmers. The project started back in 1958 thanks to the work of the local priest who set up the coop to give work to local vintners and prevent them from fleeing the Langhe hills to go and work in factories in the big cities. Vacca tells the fascinating story of the Coop and their rigorous system of 31 steps to measure and reward grape quality brought to the coop by its associates. Vacca also talks about the main markets for Barbaresco and its most famous crus such as Asili and Ovello. Tune in for another wine story dedicated to the Langhe territory in Piedmont!
