2012/9/28Villa Orsara wine - Press release at Embassy of Italy

On September the 12th

we held the first official press release of Villa Orsara wine at the Italian Embassy in Tokyo.

After the initial greetings by the Ambassador of Italy, Elio explained the aim of the promotion of Villa Orsara wine.

Erica from Royal Tirrenian introduced the wine background.

Then Mauro Colacino, the Colacino Wines`owner and Villa Orsara producer,  presented the winery history along with the technical details.

This event was a very important occasion for introducing Colacino Wines`s efforts

in producing a wine from local grapes according to the Calabrian tradition.

Mauro Colacino is not just a longtime friend of Elio, but a talented and proud Calabrian winemaker.

But the general economical crisis in Italy is affecting the wine producers in Calabria,

and when Elio heard from Colacino about the possibility of reducing their vineyards in order to face the market

he decided to cooperate in promoting this unique wine also in Japan.

Villa Orsara wine is bathing under Calabria sun, respecting nature and tradition.

Its taste reminds the homemade wine that is always present on the Calabrian family`s table.

Please come to Elio Locanda and ask for "Villa Orsara" wine ! !

And of course you can also buy it at VERA @ ITALIA!

2012/9/27Elio`s recommended menu

Special pasta:

Linguine with crab sauce, production of Ishikari, Hokkaido.

To be served along with Villa Orsara Chardonnay.

Villa Orsara Chardonnay has a delicate coconut flavor and reminds the tropical fruits aroma.

Together with the sweet, rich and creamy crab sauce it plays a perfect balance.

Please visit us and try it out!

Buon Appetito
