Offering you fascinating wines and their stories. There are more than 500 different “vigneti” in Italy, with at least 30 in Umbria alone. With us, you can have a taste of many of them, alongside whimsical food pairings that add more fun to the wines and to your experience. Knowing more about what you are drinking enhances the joy.
On April 18 the first video of the WineSong tasting lab was released. The first story pairs "scrambled eggs with ham and truffles" with two red wines. The two Reds tasted were a "Divina Villa, Etichetta Bianca" from 2018 and a "Scacciadiavoli Montefalco Rosso" from 2011. The tasting process and the results you can see at
The WineSong team published new stories about Sangiovese and about the "Duca della Corgna" winery on the Toutiao platform:
A new Video (in Chinese) has been released on Divina Villa Black Label
We wish all the best to our friends and customers, those in China, who are just getting their head out of the crisis and those in Italy, where we are on the peak of the crisis. We had big plans for spring this year and wanted to open the promotion campaign for "Duca della Corgna" winery. But the circumstances forced us to postpone all bigger events until autumn. In the meantime we are preparing information material. You can have a look of this nice video, that we produced about "Divina Villa", Etichetta nera.
During our stay in Beijing an Wuhan. we did extensive Food and Wine tasting
In any restaurant, we had dinner, we walked in with our bottles. There is people saying you cannot do Food/ Wine Pairing with Chinese Food, because on Banquet you have to many parallel dishes. Against this: there is a wine for every Chinese dish! And especially and Italian wine as Italy has such a tremendous variety of flavours. You simply need more than one wine for Chinese food feast (as it is also the case, with a more complex Western dinner. We made quite so me videos, which are available on youtube and on Chinese streaming services.
We just finished our work at QWine, and it was worthwhile. We presented 3 wineries, "Tenuta di Salviano2, "Scacciadiavoli" and "Duca della Corgna", with a selection of excellent wines from Umbria.
The top products "Sagrantino di Montefalco", "Solideo" from Lago di Corbara, "Primitivo Cantina Terribile" from Puglia and "Divina Villa" from Lago di Trasimeno were highly appreciated. But also "Baccio del Rosso" and "Corio" were liked by our visitors.
We are now negotiating with importers, and we got many useful new contacts. Thank you to the organizers, who took care to facilitate the logistics.
