Palazzo Malgara
Palazzo Malgara was launched in 1990 by two renowned Italian winemakers who wanted to focus on producing beautiful southern Italian wines using native grape varietals.  Their goal was to create highly regarded wines that reflected the characteristics of the area. Thanks to modern technology, they have been able to continue producing wines and now have gained a global following for their products.

Weingut Castelfeder -- Alto Adige

From the photo, you might think this wine region is in southern Germany or maybe Austria, but it's actually northern-most Italy in the area formerly known as Südtirol (a part of Austria until WWI), now known as Alto Adige. Bi-lingual and bi-cultural, it's Italy with a strong Austrian influence. On her first visit to Seattle, Ines Giovanett (daughter of Günther Giovanett, owner of the Castelfeder Winery) laughingly said: "I wear a dirndl! I eat knödel!" More on Ines & her family's winery>
