Corkscrews and Collectors at Palazzo Vecchio’s La Dogana  
On 13 October 2014

The members of the Italian Association for Collectors of Corkscrew will be gathering on October 25 first at Palazzo Vecchio and then at La Dogana. The theme of the meeting is “How to Taste Wine.” An enologist and sommelier, Adriano Pallotti, from Pallotti’s enoteca in Rome,  will explain the arduous journey from grape to wine and will explain the differences on the nose and in the mouth.

Namaste & Cheers

How does yoga fit in with our winery and La Dogana? According to Gabriele Chi, it’s simple – the sense of relaxation that comes from practicing yoga is the same kind of happiness that comes from the polyphenols in red wine. It’s been proven by science: the GABA neurotransmitters that are released during yoga or from red wine bring calm to overactive neurons… With 25 years of experience, careful training by Danny Paradise (Sting’s yogi), and experience running his own large farm – with fruit trees, vines, and animals – Gabriele is the perfect instructor for Palazzo Vecchio and La Dogana. And if science doesn’t convince you, our shared values will. Respect the Earth and the human spirit  - it is tangible in our wines and in our outlook on life. Namaste and Cheers!
