LA STOPPA - Italy knows best
Meet Elena Pantaleoni
I'm super stoked to be hosting this event with Elena.
Sipping on a cheeky glass of la Stoppa after a long day is a guilty pleasure of mine...
La Stoppa is a historic estate with its vineyards stretching down the slopes of Val Trebbiola, not far from the river Trebbia, in the province of Piacenza. The property consists of an ancient medieval tower and 58 acres of land, 28 of which are woods with oak, chestnut, and locust trees.
The winery is led by Elena Pantaleoni (a mentor to Arianna Occhipinti when she was a student nearby), a dedicated, intelligent and passionate woman who, together with the oenologist Giulio Armani, have dedicated the property to organic farming and traditional winemaking methods.
The combination of poor soil and old vines lead to naturally low yields and allow for minimal work in the cellar, where the process is one of guiding a wine to bottle rather than manipulation.
What we are pouring by the glass?
Malvasia Passito Vigna Volta 2009, Macchiona IGT 2007, Malvasia Ageno IGT 2011, Trebbiolo Rosso 2014, Trebbiolo Rosso Frizzante.
What's for Supper?
Food will be served from our BRAND NEW À LA CARTE MENU, choose from small and large plates and our big sharing dishes...
You can book a table for dinner, or just a glass at the bar, completely up to you. Just let us know when booking.
Dinner is well tasty though, just saying...
