Last summer we randomly came across the inventors of a quite unusual way to taste and enjoy wine: Walkingwine street wine – shop. Graziana and Giorgio, two Apulian business owners, a few months ago started their activity with the idea of bringing top quality local wine into the streets of Puglia with an equipped 3-wheeler.
“We are at our best in lonely places: nature, country side, cliffs, view points… where there’s nothing, we come, we bring the party, we go. Leaving the “nothing” in its own place” is their motto. Check their website.
We kept contact, and they offered to present a guest post with a pairing between a wine produced with grapes from the Apulian vineyards and a dish suggested by a local chef, whose flavours are enhanced by the characteristics of the wine.
Below you will find a recommendation from Walkingwine on how to pair wine and food:
- Fiano – Salento Igt wine from I buongiorno wine collection and “Steamed squilla mantis on chickpea cream” created by Teresa Buongiorno, the owner with Teodosio, of the Osteria Già sotto l’arco restaurant – Carovigno -Puglia.

- Zin – Fiano Salento White Wine and “Black Trofie Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Cuttlefish” crated by Erica Ciaccia, chef of Ristorante Porta Nova – Ostuni, Puglia
