This week we spoke with the leaders of Fons Vinum.com, another of the stores that sell in Uvinum, to know them more thoroughly and learn from their way of approaching the world of wine and the online store, as well as to discover its recommendations for wine lovers. You like to get to know them a little more? Here's our interview with them:
How did you start?
Fons Vinum S.n.c was founded in 2010 by an idea of two friends. Fabio, a Wine Producer and Oscar PC expert and Web designer both refined wine tasters with a a great passion for our well-known Piedmontese territory and its prestigious wines. For this reason, we decided to create a synergy between our interest in wine and in the power offered by internet and discovering a world of people who provide us their willingness to do, their sacrifices, and above all their passion in what they do.
What's your speciality?
In our Fons Vinum Wine-shop you can find a selection of all high level wines, even rare, carefully chosen. It is possible to find important and/or unknown labels, prestigious wines ideal for a special occasion, also every day wines but always with an one and only common denominator: high quality.
Furthermore, a trip to Champagne area made us persuaded to import to Italy unique eonological products, almost unknown, to try at least once.
What do you recommend us?
Since we come from Piedmont, up north of Italy, we may recommended a great ruby red wine, pleasantly fruity, intense and velvety on palate, a Nebbiolo wine for example, from which grapes we produce great Barolo wines.
What is your last discovery?
Our latest discoveries focus on a Piedmontese wine called Alta Langa Brut wine Classic Method consisting in a sparkling dry wine, with fine and persistent bubbles with floral nuances, perfect to be matched with summer fresh dishes.
