Appaxximento Italian Experience Masterclass

with Giacomo Boscaini

The Masi story began in 1772, when the Boscaini family acquired prestigious vineyards in the small valley called “Vaio dei Masi”, which is the origin of the company’s name. The company is still in family hands, run by the sixth and seventh generations. We are incredibly honoured to welcome Giacomo Boscaini who will be hosting this masterclass for us. Well known in the Venetian region since the time of the ancient Romans, the Appassimento grape drying technique has been used at Masi for generations. Today Masi is proud that its particular expertise in the method is recognised worldwide.
