Last week we posted on the Terroir Marche Fair, to be held in May 2015, the first-ever event devoted exclusively to Verdicchio growers.
We first wrote about Terroir Marche — an ambitious group of organic growers and winemakers in the Marches — back in July 2013.
In its own words, the group’s mission is to “promote awareness of organic farming in the Marches [Le Marche], to defend the territory and its resources, and to share the culture and practices of a sustainable and humane economy.”
The group now includes 11 grape grower-winery members.
Be sure also to follow Terroir Marche on Twitter.
And like the association on Facebook for updates on the fair etc.
