We are very excited to have two Italian Winery owners, Emilia Nardi & Roberto Pighin to host our Cellar Club on Thursday, September 17, 2015 featuring Nardi & Pighin Wines.

The youngest daughter of founder Silvio Nardi, Emilia Nardi took over management of the estate at the age of 30. Emilia grew up visiting the Montalcino estate and worked alongside her father for 10 years. The consistent quality of her wines has distinguished her as one of few female leaders in Brunello. Nardi is respected for her successful re-launching of the brand by introducing clone selections. When asked why she decided to introduce cloning she explained, “We do this for the glory not the money.”

Roberto Pighin has been intimately involved with his family winery since he was a child. After finishing his military service in 1986, he joined his father in running Fernando Pighin & Figli, and counts his dual contact with nature and other people among the greatest enjoyments of the wine industry.
