Spirited Grape Winemaker Event – Silvano Bolmida
February 8, 2020 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Do you love Barolo? Are you looking to learn more about the Piedmont region of Italy? If yes, then this winemaker event is designed for you!
Spirited Grape has the great pleasure of having Silvano Bolmida here for a winemaker event. Silvano is a dynamic and charismatic speaker who let’s his passion shine through his wines.
Silvano Bolmida was born in the hills of the Langhe countryside, and after gaining ten years experience as winemaker in a historical winery in Barolo, he leased a few hectares from his father and his brother-in-law in order to make his own wine. Possessed of the kind of restlessly inquisitive mind that sets the great winemaker apart from the merely good, he devotes himself to an exhaustive – and to ordinary mortals surely an exhausting – micro-management of his vines and of the vinification and maturation of his wines. He works closely with students at his own alma mater, the wine school in Alba, to find for example the ultimate skin contact, or the most effective herbage to inter-plant between the rows. Despite constant experimentation and tweaking, the adaptation where he considers it necessary of evermore complex technology to the winemaking process. He considers himself neither a traditionalist nor a modernist, and he has never strayed from the ultimate aim of finding the finest possible expression of the unique character that springs from the fine clay and Miocenic sands that are found in the favored Bussia sub-zone.
