Meet Winemaker Diletta Tonello

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to host winemaker Diletta Tonello at the tasting bar on Wednesday, July 17 from 4pm to 7pm. We are bringing her delightful sparkling wines into the shop for the first time, and it is wonderful to have her here to help introduce them.

As the daughter of a multi-generational farming and winemaking family, Diletta grew up among the vines of her family's vineyard. Since taking her place in the family business, she has made it her mission to introduce their wines to the world. While they cultivate a number of different international varietals on the estate, the Tonello family's passion and primary production are the indigenous varietals Garganega and Durella.

Their wines are beautiful expressions of the terroir of the Veneto region, and we were so impressed with them when we first tasted them in 2023 that we have been impatiently awaiting their arrival in DC so that we could include one of them in the Summer Six-Pack. That wine, Marachelle, will be included in this tasting as well as two other phenomenal Durella-based wines, ioTeti and ioUlisse.

So please stop in to meet Diletta and taste these phenomenal wines. We look forward to seeing you!
