Climates and Wine: Culture, Tradition & Innovation in the Alto Piemonte

Climates and Wine

Lessona is a historic town and wine denomination in the region of Alto Piemonte in Northern Italy; this is also the name of the wine offered by Quintino Sella in 1870 to toast the unification of Italy. Join historian Dan Bender and noted wine maker Pietro Cassina to converse about local and global histories and futures of winemaking. This is a unique opportunity to taste and consider the junctures of food, wine, culinary, labour, and environmental history with an invited group of scholars, industry professionals, and wine enthusiasts hosted by Culinaria and the Feeding City and SF3 lab.
