Ca Madresca Wine Tasting

Ca Madresca is owned by Adriano Teston in Fiume Veneto, Italy. His wines are produced from grapes from three regions: Friuli doc Grave, Colli Orientale del Friuli, and Collio. His Moscato won the 2009 gold medal in AWC in Vienna. His wines are served at a variety of restaurants in the Pordenone area.

I attended a wine tasting at Ca Madresca where I was able to sample many of Adriano's wines. My favorites were his Moscato Rosso, which the grapes are harvested by hand, and his Ramadolo, a sweet dessert wine. He served delicious appetizers during the tasting as well!

Adriano was even kind enough to invite us to lunch with his family after the tasting. We dined at Da Bepo, one of the restaurants where Ca Madresca wines are served. Lunch was amazing (especially the lemon torte dessert) and the company of Adriano's family even better!
