Meet the Maker Tasting: Fabio Motta – 19th of November 2021 7PM
Fabio Motta, originally from Lombardia, travelled to the Tuscan coast to work harvest with much respected producer Michele Satta, where he fell in love with not only the land but also his future wife Benedetta. In 2009 after working closely with Michele for 10 years, he decided to open his own business following his personal vision for Bolgheri. His vineyards lie in the gorgeous foothills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea where he produces wines from Syrah, Merlot and Sangiovese from the four hectare ‘Pieve’ vineyard and has since added the smaller ‘Le Gonnare’ Vineyard for his white wine – a blend of Vermentino, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc. Fabio may be young, but he is by no means a newcomer to Bolgheri. He has successfully completed 20 harvests and his new winery is nearing completion.
Join us as we catch up with Fabio just after Harvest to discuss how the vintage is looking, what he sees as the future of Bolgheri and of course to taste a range of his outstanding wines.
