So, What Do You Know About Lam-bru-sco?

If you instantly hear that fun little jingle, “Riuinte on ice, so nice” I have three things to say:

One, you’re as old as I am!  

Two, was it that nice, though? Really?

Third, we have some fun things to share with you that are going to up your wine nerd game, and your food and wine pairing prowess.


Emilia-Romagna is a region in northern Italy, known for their culinary treasures, and Bologna is its cuisine capital.  The legendary gastronomic riches of Emilia-Romagna include things like Parmigiano-Reggiano, Prosciutto Di Parma, and thick, rich, intensely sweet Balsamic vinegars from Modena.  All three examples of dedication and painstaking patience, the reward, world renowned culinary delights that truly have no rivals.  

I love that.  Don’t you just love that?  That a family is willing to put in the work, the time, the dedication to invest in our culinary indulgences?

Now, what to drink with all those layered and complex, deep, aged flavors? Yeah, you see where we are going here, the frothy, flirty, playful, and brilliantly food-friendly, Lambrusco.

If you are thinking all Lambrusco is sweet, you would be very much mistaken.  Lambrusco has a tremendous range in terms of colors, styles and levels of dryness.  Truthfully, there are some Lambruscos that are bone dry and even tannic. 

A Live Zoom Event Featuring Lini Lambrusco, Friday May 28

There is an entire world of Lambrusco to discover, and we have the perfect introduction, or re-introduction to Lambrusco for you:   an evening with Alicia Lini of Lini Lambrusco and famed blogger and food and wine historian, Jeremy Parzen of Do Bianchi, over Zoom.  Alicia will be dialing in at 2:00 am her time in Emilia Romagna to share her family story and discuss three of her Lambrusco and answer any questions you might have.
