CWW – Let’s talk about… Threats and opportunities for Abruzzo, Europe’s most biodiverse region, with Rodrigo Redmont

May 21 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This is a very special Let’s talk about… online seminar – number 100 in the series!

Welcome to the mountainous and geologically fascinating region of Abruzzo, set between the Apennine mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Despite its importance – it is Italy’s fifth most productive wine region, ahead of Toscana and Piemonte – it is woefully little known or understood.

Our speaker, Rodrigo Redmont, will aim to correct that. Following a general introduction to the region, he will highlight changes in Abruzzo classifications and the rising importance of private wineries alongside the large co-operatives that revived the region’s fortunes in the 20th century. Climate change and such economic challenges as the decrease in wine consumption will also feature in Rodrigo’s presentation, as he explains how Abruzzo is particularly well able to respond to the pressures of both.

He will also cover the activity of the Custodes Laureti Association, where six wineries, including Talamonti, have come together to protect and enhance the landscape, agriculture and heritage of the area around the historic village of Loreto Aprutino.

Rodrigo, who is of American origin but was raised in Italy, established Talamonti in 2001 with his fiancé as the latest step in a wine career which has included managing export sales in a number of leading Italian wine estates, inclding Castello Banfii.

Today, Talamonti is considered one of the country’s fastest growing sustainable boutique wineries, exporting its annual production of 200,000 cases to 65 countries.
