Spina will be hosting an evening of wines from the renowned Friulian producer Ronchi di Cialla and representative Ivan Rapuzzi will be speaking on behalf of his family estate on Tuesday, March 5th.

Famous for rescuing Schioppettino from extinction in the 1970s as well as their delicious Cialla Bianco that ages with elegance and tenacity.

The Ronchi di Cialla estate is strictly a family business. While Dina and Paolo Rapuzzi, who founded it in 1970, were attracted by wine growing as a way of living, their children Pierpaolo and Ivan belong to a generation that “grew up with vines”. Both of them have, in fact, a degree in Food Sciences and are agrarian experts; they firmly support the Ronchi di Cialla policy and immemorial wine making tradition in Friuli. This family has thus become an uncommon heir of ancient traditions on one hand and modern scientific knowledge on the other making this small family business out of the ordinary.
