Uncorked: Terredora di Paola Wines
We continue our Uncorked Series with an amazing opportunity to meet Daniela Mastroberardino, owner of Terredora di Paolo- the definitive winery of Italy’s Campania region. Daniela and the wines of Terredora are internationally sought after, representing the perfect balance of respect for historic culture with cutting edge practices.
Explore Campania, Italy with us- the region along the central west Mediterranean coast, known for ancient ruins and Mount Vesuvius, the dramatic Amalfi coastline, the colorful city of Naples and a distinctive history of wine and food dating back to the 12th century BC. Once again, we take the opportunity to challenge ourselves with celebrating the vegetables of the season in the context of wine pairings, and this time with grape varieties that produce distinctive wines that are not found anywhere else on earth. What would you pair with Aglianico, Fiano or Greco di Tufo? Perhaps if you joined writer and philosopher Pliny the Elder you too would take one sip of Falanghina and declare In Vino Veritas (in wine there is truth) as he is purported to have done.
The wines of Terredora di Paolo represent the gold standard of this region, with a reputation as the most respected, experienced and knowledgeable winemakers of the area. The Mastroberardino family is renowned for integrating forward-thinking technology with the regions’ established history, bringing to life a unique legacy that fosters the avant-garde character of Terredora Di Paolo. Over 10 generations spanning more than 200 years, their mission includes the notion that “Tradition is a value insofar as it is a bond of coherence and credibility compared to the decisions taken.”
The result is a portfolio of wines that are exciting and dynamic; the whites are known for their aromatic scents of fruits and flowers, bright acidity, and crisp structure, while the reds (mainly from Aglianico) have big personalities which require a little aging.
It seems to us to be a perfect fit- partnering The Chef’s Garden vegetables and our shared commitment to terroir and sustainable, innovative farming and culinary practices.
This Uncorked Series Dinner will unleash the creative possibilities with a 6-course dinner, 9 pairings from this iconic winery, and Daniela Mastroberardino sharing family stories through her legendary wines.
Daniela Mastroberardino is an owner of Terredora di Paolo and its Administrative Director.
After studying economics and commerce at the Universita` degli Studi di Salerno, she began her career in the family business in 1992. Following a separation within the family business in 1994, Terredora di Paolo was born out of the 445 acres of historic family vineyards. Daniela joined her father, Walter, and brothers, Paolo and Lucio, in Terredora di Paolo’s mission to integrate the best of modern production technology into the cultivation of Campania’s great native varietals: Aglianico, Fiano, Greco and Falanghina.
In the course of a few short years, their efforts paid off. Terredora di Paolo is not only the largest property specialized in viticulture in Campania, but is considered one of the most prestigious wineries in the region.
In addition to being the Administrative Director at Terredora di Paolo, Daniela holds the offices of president of the National Association of the Wine Tourism Movement, national advisor of the National Association of Women in Wine, and advisor to the comittee of the Streets of Wine and Tastes of Irpinia.
