Meet the Owner – Angela Maculan
‘WHY NOT WEDNESDAY’
We’re excited to have Angela Maculan join us at the shop this Wednesday, September 14th from 4-7pm!!! We hope you can join us too!
For three generations the Maculan family has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes in Breganze, an enchanting village at the foot of the Alps in Italy’s Veneto region. While the surrounding mountains protect the area from cold winds, creating a perfect microclimate for the cultivation of wine grapes, it is Fausto Maculan’s drive and commitment that sets these wines apart and distinguishes Maculan as an innovative, dynamic winery.
Continually at the forefront of any dessert wine discussion, Fausto Maculan has received numerous accolades from the world’s most esteemed wine critics. It can be said that Fausto Maculan was born to make wine, having been birthed in the very building that today houses his office at the Maculan winery. At age 13, he began working at the winery during school vacations and visiting customers with the assistance of a driver (he was too young to have a license). Since 1985, Fausto has been the course director for the Association of Italian Sommeliers (AIS). He is also recognized as an expert taster, nominated to judge both national and international wine competitions. In 2007, Angela and Maria Vittoria, Fausto’s daughters, officially joined the operation.
Born just after the harvest of 1977, Fausto Maculan jokes that his daughter Angela was the best thing to come out of that vintage since it was not a good year for wine. She took her first steps in the winery and proceeded to follow her father’s every move there; indeed she became the mascot of the Maculan winery team! Today, Angela is fully immersed in the family business. We’re thrilled to welcome Angela to the shop and hear the stories behind these great wines.
