Tasting a Falanghina at the London International Wine Fair

By In Videos

tasting falanghina LIWFAs is so often the way in my chaotic life I ordered a bunch of Italian wines, duly sampled and wrote the tasting notes, lost the notes, found them again and then forgot all about them. I put it down to old age myself…
The wines were made by Gerardo Vernazzaro, an Italian from Naples. The wines mostly made from Falanghina, a white variety that I thought delicious and as charming as Gerardo himself. And how do I know he is charming? I’ve met him!

As myself, CookSister and The Wine Sleuth, scurried around the London International Wine Fair, I spied the distinctively packaged wines on a stand… and there he was Gerardo Vernazzaro himself. He took us through his range, several listed by Naked Wines. A the conclusion Denise the Wine Sleuth took a little video, cooksister holding the camera. I hate to steel her thunder (she does after all still owe me a tenner) but while they were videoing, I too recorded the encounter on my new camera. The video is totally unedited (hey, I was amazed the video came out at all!) but should work.

The wine they are tasting is the Falaghina Strione 2007 listed by Naked Wines (the only UK stockist) for ยฃ11.99.

    Ah, yes – that was such a fun interlude! Gerardo was perfectly charming and his snacks were still the best! I reckon I have a new career as a camerawoman ahead of me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I most certainly enjoyed my friend Gerry’s wines! And yes, I think that Jeanne has a career ahead of her as a camerawoman. ๐Ÿ™‚
