Marco Barba Barbarossa

Marco “Barba”, grown up in Madonna di Lonigo, near Vicenza, is the heart (and the face, if you check the label closely) of the Marcobarba project.  Since his youth, as soon as he finished the mandatory studies, he began working as a carpenter, but he soon discovered a deep interest for biodynamic agriculture and Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy. He’s thus moved in the Jura canton of Switzerland, to work as a shepherd and  agricultural farmer.

In 2015, returned to Veneto, he began working with his friend Stefano Menti in the latter’s family winery. Thanks to the enologic experiences accumulated in the Menti Wiery, he started, in his free time, to produce some wine from the grapes of several vineyards he managed on behalf of a few elderly widows in his native town.

In the following years, with the help of a few friends he met during the years working at Menti, Marco improved the agronomic aspects of his wine production, and since 2018, driven by their passion for biodynamic agriculture and their respect for nature, Marco and his close knit team of  “Barbaboyz” have launched the adventure of the Marcobarba brand, with the goal to produce pure grapes from which they derive straightforward, genuine wines. Or, just like Marco, to make them coarse and irreverent, with a big heart.

Marco and the Barbaboyz’ winemaking and bottling is done in the Menti Giovanni Winery.

Samuel Smith Taddy Porter

The Samuel Smith brewery in Tadcaster was founded in 1758 and is Yorkshire’s oldest brewery. Samuel Smith is one of the few remaining independent exporting breweries in England and is the last to utilize the classic Yorkshire Square system of fermentation solely in stone (slate) squares. 

The rich Samuel Smith strain of yeast at the brewery dates from the early 1900s. Hops are hand-weighed by the master hop blender, and the brewing water is drawn from the original well, sunk over 250 years ago.

Samuel Smith produces over a dozen beers, but they are most known for their ultra-traditional English ales. The Organic Pale Ale, Taddy Porter, Oatmeal Stout, Imperial Stout, and Nut Brown are all considered some of the world’s best examples of their styles and are often seen as the benchmark in their categories.

Tornatore Etna Rosso

A rising star in the Etna region, Tornatore is becoming one of the region’s biggest and most respected wineries. Their vineyards are located at an altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level on the north side of this active volcano.

Out of a Sicilian family heritage that traces back to the 17th century, the Tornatore’s Mount Etna wine ventures began in 1865. Today the family’s operations are headed by Giuseppe Tornatore, a businessman whose expertise led to the acquisition of some of the region’s finest north-facing vineyards in the early 2000’s. That heritage and the Tornatore’s profound respect and understanding of the land is showcased in wines that capture the essence of Etna, deftly balancing concentrated flavors, complexity, freshness and refinement.

The company lies in the northern side of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. The soils have volcanic origin and were created through the disintegration of lava, ash and stones from previous volcanic eruptions. The climate on the northern side of the Etna is characterized by mild temperatures, and more rain fall reflecting the influence of the Volcano. The combination of soil, climate and the skill of the winemakers, have made the northern slope of Etna an ideal area for the production of high-quality wines. “Our vineyards and our winery are only a few kilometers from our family home. Our entire family is rooted there. We have the greatest respect for this region, and we believe we have a responsibility to be stewards of Etna and to reflect its distinct character in our wines.” – Giuseppe Tornatore

Le Macchiole Bolgheri Rosso

Le Macchiole is located in Bolgheri, Tuscany, on the stunning Etruscan Coast. The landscape is magical, where rolling hills are blanketed by forest and where vineyards and olive trees meet the Tyrrhenian Sea. Le Macchiole was founded in 1983 on the desire of Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli to turn their passion for wine into their life dream. It was a revolutionary project rooted in their hometown of Bolgheri, at the time not as famous as now. The idea was simple but decisive: to originate in the vineyard, investing completely in research and experimentation in planting including varieties lesser used in Bolgheri. There are 24 hectares of estate owned vineyards, organically farmed with each harvest producing 5 wines: Paleo Bianco – Toscana IGT, Bolgheri Rosso – DOC Bolgheri, Paleo Rosso – Toscana IGT, Scrio – Toscana IGT and Messorio – Toscana IGT.

Punt E Mes

Pronounced “poont-eh-mess” in the Piemontese dialect, it means a point and a half. The story goes that on 19 April 1870 , a stockbroker, caught up in a discussion with colleagues whilst in the Carpano wine shop about the increase in share prices on that day – one and a half points – ordered his usual Carpano vermouth but asked for the barman to add half a measure of bitter, using the regional expression “Punt e Mes”. The drink immediately became popular as an aperitif before lunch, as recalled by the barman of the time Maurizio Boeris.

The bizzarre origin of this new name came into common usage not long after, with “regulars” of the wine shop ordering Punt e Mes with a gesture.Whereby they would only need to raise their thumb to mean one Point and trace a straight line upwards in mid-air to mean a Half point for the barman to understand straight away that they wanted a Punt e Mes. It was a favourite drink of the founder of FIAT, Giovanni Agnelli, as he recalled in his memoirs of 1916.

Chum Churum Apple Soju

Soju is a very popular spirit sold in Korea that is traditionally made by distilling rice and other cereal grains. However, since the 1960s to alleviate rice shortages, most soju has been produced by diluting high strength neutral alcohol from distilled sweet potatoes or tapioca.

One of the most trendy brands in South Korea, Chum Churum (which translates as “like the first tme”) is popular because of the added alkaline water, higher sweetness, and relatively lower alcohol content. This smoother and softer profile has been extremely successful and is especially popular among younger drinkers in South Korea.
