In praise of Freisa


Freisa, where have you been all our lives?

We know pretty much where you have been, dear Freisa because with shame we have been confusing you with Fragola, the grape that tastes of strawberries. Not any longer.

Waitrose decided to offer this fantastic Freisa for £7.99 a bottle. It's still available. Get down there immediately says Slotovino. 

What a bargain and how delicious!

Freisa belongs to the fantastic grape varieties of Piemonte that are not Nebbiolo. They include Arneis, Timorasso, Pelaverga Piccolo, Pelaverga Grosso, Ruche, Grignolino, Brachetto and others.
