La Pergola Roero Arneis

The story of Kermit discovering Tenuta La Pergola involved a fateful lunch while trekking through the back roads of Piemonte and a magical glass of wine that led him down a rabbit hole trying to find the winemaker. That search led to a fourth generation mom and pop family farm operation founded over 120 years ago. Arneis is a classic Piemont white grape that nearly went extinct in the 70s but pulled through because of the work of a handful Italian growers like this one. Fun, fresh, stone-fruity, sustainably farmed, and a perfect wine for spaghetti and clams.
