Alois Lageder and 20 Years of Summa

ITALY (Margreid) – At Lageder’s, they’ve had a different mentality ever since, often picked holes in arguments and re-designed it. Twenty years ago, Alois Lageder founded the Summa. Passionate vintners with a vision, gathered on an intimate event with personality, this is what the Summa, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary, has been about. Like during the first event of its kind, in 1997, people from the international wine business gather during the Summa so as to enjoy the topic of wine and to exchange views on it. Meanwhile, the Summa, which coincides with VinItaly, has become a fixed date for professionals and wine lovers.

OBITUARY

Livio Felluga, Italy’s Wine Pioneer, Died

ITALY (Brazzano) – He was the founder of one of the biggest wine cellars in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, Italy, and his pioneering feats are undoubted. Livio Felluga with his ambitious vision for viticulture, winemaking, and marketing revived the wines of this region. The widely appreciated patriarch died on December, 21st, at the biblical age of 102. His death filled many companions with sadness but the memories of Felluga’s word, success, and the particular qualities of his Friuli wines will be kept and are a comfort to many.

Edible Is also Distillable: From Zwieback to A Distillate

GERMANY (Neukirch) – For each one who grew up in the GDR, “Neukircher Zwieback” is part of his or her childhood memories. It tastes purely, is particularly crispy, and with butter and jam or honey on it, it is a real delicacy. Adults also love him, above all women. Men are rather reluctant. This zwieback from the Oberlausitz region is still available, it is produced there since 1900, this particularly crispy biscuit is still loved by children and many women. In the future, this zwieback might be enjoyed by men, as well – above all in liquid form. As from now on, “Neukircher Zwieback” is available as a distillate, too, probably the first “spirit” of its kind worldwide.
