Wines of Emilio Bulfon


Ben Robson

On 10th November, we got our introduction to some near extinct Italian varietals and the opportunity to taste wines made with them by Emilio Bulfon, the man who re-discovered them in the hills of Friuli over thirty years ago and since then, has dedicated his life to the preservation of these ancient grapes. Ben Robson, who presented the wines is Bulfon’s UK agent and knows the area, grapes and the wines well. This surely was one of the highlights of the Society’s tasting year.

Supper:  At 9 pm, in the upstairs room, Helen McNamara served Tuscan braised lamb with Italian roasted potatoes followed by Panna Cotta.’
