Meet the Makers

Meet the Makers

We believe the best way to learn about wine is to drink it. But, with so much out there, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Led by our friendly experts, Eataly Vino's complimentary tastings are here to help.

In our Meet the Makers series, Eataly Wine Club subscribers get exclusive access to our featured winery of the month. This month, Enrico will introduce Ronchi di Cialla, as he leads you on a complimentary tasting on March 23 from 7-8 p.m.

Located in the hills of the Friuli wine region, the Ronchi di Cialla estate is strictly a family business. While Dina and Paolo Rapuzzi, who founded the winery in 1970, were attracted to wine growing as a way of living, their children Pierpaolo and Ivan belong to a generation that “grew up with vines.” Both have earned degrees in Food Sciences and are agrarian experts; they firmly support the Ronchi di Cialla philosophy and immemorial wine making tradition in Friuli Venezia Giulia.

With unique heritage and skills, the family blends ancient traditions and modern scientific knowledge to create the high-quality Ronchi di Cialla wines.

Stop by the wine shop, located just steps away from our 23rd Street entrance, to chat with Enrico and discover the taste of Friuli. Then, explore our full calendar of wine tastings.
