On this week’s episode of In the Drink, Joe is joined in the studio by Federico Scarzello of Scarzello Giorgio & Figli, and Kevin Hedges of Vignaioli.

Scarzello Giorgio & Figli was founded in the 1940s by Scarzello’s grandfather and his brother. Since 2001, he has been involved in the technical management of the winery with his father, and became the owner in 2009, overseeing all operations from vineyard to cellar. The winery produces 25,000 bottles a year with only the grapes they cultivate in the village of Barolo.
