Marco Tassone & Ilaria Giovannini are the founders of SIXTYFOUR/EIGHTY. Their entrepreneurial journey started eight years ago with a small coffee shop in Bethnal Green. It has now grown into The Hive where this event is taking place. Via the Hive, the couple started working with small artisan winemakers who produce organic, biodynamic and natural wine. This has fuelled their desire to make their own biodynamic wine. Their long term vision is to make the first and best biodynamic Alta Langa.
For this tasting, we have something very special up our sleeve.
Enter RADIKON - a winery located in Oslavia, in the north-east of Italy (close to the Slovenian border). Radikon pioneered the natural and orange wines movement. When the late Stanko Radikon first started working with a local indigenous grape variety called Ribolla Gialla, he soon decided that it needs to be treated differently to reach its full potential. This has mainly been achieved through prolonged skin contact, a method of vinification already used by Stanko's grandfather. Combined with long periods of barrel and bottle ageing, a truly unique taste is achieved as well as a robustness which allowed Radikon to entirely eliminate the use of sulfites. All Radikon wines are now created in this way. The result is unusual orange and red wine with astronomical complexity, high ageing potential and deep, wild flavours.
We are going to taste four outstanding Radikon wines with you:
