Emidio Pepe – Guided Flight with Chiara de Iulis Pepe

Matt first met Chiara de Iulis Pepe back in 2012, when he visited the legendary Emidio Pepe estate in Abruzzo’s Teramo Hills.
(For an account of that visit and more of Italy’s Adriatic Coast, click here.)

Emidio Pepe proved to the world that Montepulciano, Italy’s second-most planted red grape, could be considered world-class. He believes his wines, made without sulfur, each bottle hand-decanted by his wife before release, are among the best in Italy. Antonio Galloni’s Vinous deems Pepe’s wines “history in a bottle.”

Chiara, Emidio’s granddaughter, worked harvests across the world before returning to her family winery, ready to bring their already-natural approach to viticulture into the new era of climate change.

Chiara is in Napa Valley to lead a farming session at one of the valley’s top properties, and she’s taking an evening off to visit Compline Wine Shop. Meet Chiara, and discover her family’s vision and wines in a guided, seated tasting format.
