Oliver McCrum Wines has been importing small production Italian wine and distributing to fine retail and restaurant establishes throughout California since 1994. Over time, our portfolio of producers has steadily grown to over 45 producers from 15 different regions of Italy. We look for typical Italian wines with clarity and freshness, usually made from indigenous Italian grape varieties using clean, transparent winemaking techniques and no obvious use of oak.

Harvest Update: Castello di Verduno

Michele Boscia

I’m very happy with the 2013 harvest, actually I was happy with all the past 10 vintages… but this year I’m more happy!!!

Happy because we had a perfect season: snow in winter (not too much honestly!), rains during spring (a lot of rain!! Unfortunately we had almost no cherries), a dry, sunny, warm summer and we are having the best condition for a beginning of fall: cold night (8-10°C early morning) and warm and tidy day (25-27°C).

I’m expecting amazing grapes full of flavors, body and color! A good acidity will allow an important aging!

Almost all the grapes are still hanging… we harvested the Dolcetto and the Pelaverga to make the sparkling and the white.

Those wines are reflecting my expectations…

I’ll follow up with Pelaverga, Barbera and Nebbiolo!!!
