On this week’s episode of In the Drink, host Joe Campanale is joined in the studio by Elena Pantaleoni of the La Stoppa winery. La Stoppa is an ancient estate with its vineyards stretching along the Trebbiola valley, not far from the river Trebbia, in the Italian province of Piacenza. Pantaleoni took over the family estate in 1993 and, with help from Giulio Armani, she rapidly guided the production toward organic farming rules and the use of local grapes.
