This week on In the Drink, host Joe Campanale is joined by Raffaele Seghesio, son of Renzo Seghesio, perhaps best known as a family producer of Barolo. From the Pajana della Ginestra vineyard of Monforte d’Alba, Raffaele got his first taste of the family livelihood at 4 years old, affixing labels and foil bottle tops. He currently assists his father and brother Federico with the daily operations. Raffaele studied medicine in Torino and is also a practicing surgeon in Alba. Kevin Hedges, wine consultant for Vignaioli Selection is also in studio adding to the conversation.
“We want to say to our customers: you have to give time to this wine because it will pay off.” [28:00]
