WINES WORTH LOCATING: BOLLLICINE
- with Trevor Langley
Bolllicine (3 x lll) is derived from the word bollicine (bubbles). The vines are located to the eastern side of Veneto, Italy.
Bolllicine came about because of a game played in a garden where bottles of sparkling wine were opened with the corks propelled across the garden. The distance travelled by each cork was measured. The furthest distance was marked with a small flag with 2 Ls. Chardonnay Riesling di Bolllicine then beat the ‘record’ and was noted with 3 Ls on the flag. Other Bolllicine products followed, with unique designs and high-quality, defined by organic contact and methods of production.
