At wine tasting and lunch with Armando Castagnedi, owner of Tenuta Sant’Antonio family winery in Italy’s Veneto region, I solved this riddle. Q: What is even better than one charming, skilled, prestigious Italian wine producer? A: Four of them that share the same vision and even the same surname. Armando (far right) and his brothers — Tiziano, Paolo, and Massimo — are the foursome behind Familia Castagnedi, known for their distinguished single vineyard production of the great wines in the Veronese tradition: Amarone, Valpolicella, and Soave.

Here’s why I am an enthusiast: 1) The Ease: Embark, unpack, and float my way to relaxation, culinary excellence, a ..read more
