The new year starts with Fabio Gea: “La msòira e’l rastel”
Neive, Langhe, Piedmont
With the new year, the long-awaited Thursday evening appointments with producers are coming back to Vino Vero Venezia.
The first meeting is scheduled for Thursday 9 January 2020, with Fabio Gea and his winery “La msòira e’l rastel” in Neive, Langhe, Piedmont. An authentic “one man show”, Fabio will be the only protagonist of the evening, as he is also a geologist and winemaker outside the box.
Fabio Gea has his own one-hectare farm in the Langhe; in 2013 he moved to Bricco di Neive, in the province of Cuneo, where his grandfather Giuseppe cultivated Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo vineyards.
Today the winery “La msòira e’l rastel”, in Italian the sickle and the rake, produces about 5,000 bottles of both extreme blends and denomination wines such as Pino (this was the grandfather’s nickname), a Dolcetto d ‘ Biodynamic Alba. Gea likes to experiment with the least invasive production processes possible, but equally original and always outside the box, such as micro-vinification in ovoid-shaped porcelain containers.
Among the wines served: Barbaresco – 2012, 2015, Barbera d’Alba Superiore – 2016, 2018, Cul Otte – 2018.

We are finally reopening today, with bated breath in the hope that this is not a parenthesis, but a reconciliation without end.
Having made a round of phone calls, we are pleased in the knowledge that the majority of our counterparts have found ways of reopening, however, the sadness lingers on for those who unfortunately have to remain closed.
New regulations require us to adapt our service somewhat, we will no longer be serving at the counter, instead, we will provide table service with a newly created series of dishes to accompany your lunches and dinners on the waterfront.
Furthermore, it will now be possible to reserve a table by calling us on +39 041 2750044.
We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
