Brand: Tiamo wines are one of the many labels of the pioneering, British husband and wife team of Mel and Janie Master, their son Charlie along with the Sager family, owner of the acclaimed importer of family wineries, Winesellers, LTD. Renowned for bringing great value wines to the US, Mel was responsible for introducing and promoting the wines of Georges Duboeuf in the US. The Masters have consistently brought fantastic value wines to the US, along with setting up their own wineries [Jordan Winery, Les Jamelles, Tortoise Creek]. All grapes for the Tiamo label are sourced from small growers and cooperatives, the wines are certified organic.
Winemaking: Grapes are from certified organic vineyards in the hills of Valdobbiadene, with moraine, sandstone and clay soils. Primary fermentation in stainless steel vats for 10 days, followed by a second fermentation in glass-lined tanks for 45 days.
Winemaking: Light gold in colour with aromas of apple, pear, honey and white flowers. Green apple, pear and herbs glide atop consistent, fizzy bubbles. Citrus acidity, red apple, honey and minerals shimmer on the crisp finish. Lovely on its own, fantastic as the star in Sardinian Iced Tea à la Dennis Mullally I made as an aperitivo.
Pairing Suggestions from the Winemaker: Lighter cuisine food, especially fish/shellfish, vegetables and softer cheeses. It’s an ideal aperitif and with any appetizer. It is also an excellent base for cocktails—such as the Bellini or Mimosa.
