I've only stopped once in Carema, in 2004, even though I've driven by a few times. We went to visit Ferrando's vines, and my memory is that they're on pergolas that are only about 4 feet high, which means the farmer has to kind of crawl around underneath to prune and harvest. And the vines are on steep terraces with no chance of using a tractor; it’s an incredibly labor-intensive place to grow grapes. So far as I can tell there are only 4 producers who currently bottle Carema: the Produttori dei Carema (a very good coop that includes almost all the vineyard owners in town), Orsolani, Santa Clelia, and Ferrando – by far the best known in the US, thanks to Rosenthal. Now you have a chance to see how they age, which I have never done, and which brings me to my modest proposal: on July 26, 2016, join me for dinner at Franny’s. I will bring Ferrando Carema 1957, 1964, 1971, 1971 cru Vignaccia, 1981, 1982, and 1990. Price of admission: one bottle of Ferrando from any other vintage, and the cost of dinner (inc service and tax) of $100. If you’re game, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Just a few seats are available. Jamie Wolff
