    Fossalta di Piave is a town about 40 miles north of Venice Italy. About 4,000 people call this place home and receive their income from the vine industry and tourism. As a tourist, most people stop in the area where Ernest Hemingway was injured at the age of 18. On July 8th, 1918, Hemingway was badly wounded while serving as an ambulance driver. His injuries were so severe he had to be moved to a hospital in Milan.  Ernest had volunteered for the American Red Cross in France before World War I has erupted. He was eventually transferred to the Italian front to help along the Piave delta. As for the wine industry, Fossalta di Piave has an array of vineyards and companies. We decided to use a white Zinfandel  in our Swell Zinfandel Wine Gift Basket.

    Bluestone White Zinfandel is a light & crisp blush colored wine with a sweet balance of white and red flavors. It serves well as an aperitif or with meat based dishes such as blackened salmon, roasted turkey, chicken breast, and pork chops. Since Bluestone is so versatile, we accompanied the wine with crackers, cheese spread, pretzels, mustard, and other snacks – all in a wicker tea cup basket.

    La Vendemmia Wines, of New York, is the parent company of Narduzzi Importers – who were able to get this delicious Italian Wine to the North-Eastern United States. Suzanne and Cristiano Narduzzi, a husband and wife team, moved to New Jersey from Northern Italy where they met. Their passion of Italian wines grew by living so close to Tuscany and Veneto. “I grew up in Venice and find it a privilege to be serving the citizens on New Jersey with some of the same wines my family and I enjoy at home. Knowing that our customers will be drinking these wines at their favorite Italian restaurants makes me feel like I have brought a piece of Italy to New Jersey,” said co-owner and president of Narduzzi Imports, Cristiano.
