We visited Italy and brought back some new wines | Cin Cin

Cin Cin Founder David Toscano reflects on his recent trip to Italy, with sourcing new Italian wines top of the agenda.

During the first week of July, Cin Cin Western Road General Manager James Thomson and I were delighted to be hosted by Joe Wadhams of Hallgarten Wines on a wine trip to Campania in Italy. 

It was an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the Italian culture, taste some fantastic wines as guests of the Feudi di San Gregorio winery, and of course, sample the best southern Italian food we could find.

Highlights of the trip included: a tour of the Feudi winery in the Avellino hills high above Naples with a tasting of their full range of wines, dinner at their Michelin starred restaurant Marenna, a visit to the buffalo farm and mozzarella production centre at Tenuta Vannulo, a night out in Salento with non stop Negronis, and even time for a truly life changing pizza at 50 Kalo in Naples.

All in all, a fine way to spend a few days and one which helped us expand the range of wines on our lists at our restaurants. 

Check out the Dubl sparkling Falanghina, the organic Sophia Fiano and the Teodosio Aglianico del Vulture wines all brought back with us on this trip and on the list now.

Read about how Cin Cin Hove General Manager James Thomson spent months curating the perfect wine list.
