Sarah Fiorini from Fattoria Poggio Alloro

This month my "Italy Uncorked" feature in the Bostoniano was fun to write and tell the story the story of Sarah Fiorini whom is part of the family that owns Fattoria Poggio Alloro located in San Gimignano, Tuscany.  Sarah is also the author of a recipe book called "A Family Farm in Tuscany".  She shared her beautiful story of the struggles of her grandparents and how their family came about producing wine.  I had the opportunity to sample some of her family's wines along with their homemade olive oil produced on their estate as well.

In the same evening I met Paul Turina of Due Fratelli Imports whom rediscovered his family's italian heritage hailing from the Lake Garda region of Lombardy.  He now imports his family's wines and promotes them including some interesting indigenous grapes of the region.

Follow along to Italy Uncorked to read the story on Fattoria Poggio Alloro's Sarah Fiorini.
