It’s way too dangerously drinkable!
About The Wine
This is one of the great staples of the Castagna range.
Long-time lovers of this gem of a Beechworth producer will know that no tasting session at Castagna is complete without a healthy sample of their premium Vermouth.
It's the combination of spicy, sweet and exotic perfume that sucks you back to the glass and makes you crave a plate of something salty and meaty on the side.
The balance is all important in Vermouth - too sweet and it's sickly, too dry and the spice is overwhelming. Adam Castagna has all the dials tuned to perfection for their signature Classic Dry.
Castagna is one of the leading producers of the Beechworth region.
In 1997, Julian and Carolann Castagna packed up their city life and moved into and caravan on a bare patch of dirt in the Beechworth region of north-east Victoria. Farmed biodynamically from the get go, the Castagnas planted their vineyard with a view to making complex Syrah in the mode of Cote-Rotie and savoury, structural Italian varieties that could compete with their European counterparts.
It's a wildly successful family business that they have built, with son Adam stepping into the winemaking role and a sea of adoring wine collectors awaiting each new release. Castagna wines are true wines of terroir. They taste of where they come from as do all of the great wines of the world.
