Hello – My name is Adam Castagna, I am the assistant winemaker here at Castagna and I am making, here at Castagna, my very own label, Adam’s Rib.
The intention with Adam’s Rib is to make available, drinkable, affordable wines, but with lots of character. They are called ‘The Red’ and ‘The White’, and the varieties will be the best of available fruit. This year ‘The Red’ is a blend of nebbiolo and shiraz. ‘The White’ we have settled as a blend of chardonnay and viognier.
I am very fortunate; I have, for years, been subjected to fine wines. At dinner, when I was knee-high, my father started me off with a spoonful of this or that – often great wines if it was a special dinner party – the wine was always mixed with water, the idea being that with each passing year there was more wine less water. Fortunately, now, there is very little water. I think those spoonfuls are coming home to roost for I am just now beginning to understand balance and flavour. And to think, all I ever wanted to be was a fireman.
