Spring Italian Selections from Garafoli Winery

WNW presents Spring Italian Selections from Garafoli Winery

Garofoli is one of the oldest wineries in the Marche, dating back to 1871 when Antonio Garofoli began producing wine for the local pilgrims coming to the famous church of Loreto. In 1901, Antonio’s son, Gioacchino, founded the Gioacchino Garofoli winery. His two sons, Franco and Dante, succeeded him in management of the estate after World War II. Casa Vinicola Gioacchino Garofoli became a company in 1950 and started distributing the Garofoli wines to Italy’s major cities, as well as other European markets. In the early 1970’s, Franco’s sons, Carlo and Gianfranco, joined the family company. Together, the two generations worked to further development of the winery’s production and commercial activities. Today, Garofoli wines are available in more than 50 countries worldwide. Altogether, the Garofoli family has been involved in the wine industry for more than five generations. The same philosophy has always guided the estate: constantly updating production techniques while respecting traditional winemaking methods and the unique terrior of the Marche.
Come down on Wednesday to hear more about the Garofoli Winery and to taste some of our favorite spring selections. We’ll be tasting two amazing Verdicchios, one Rosato and one Rosso. These wines are perfect for moving into warmer weather, and you won’t want to miss the opportunity to try them.
