The Stories Behind Wine Episode 2 – Oslavia – Drinking History

Inspired by the book, “Ribolla Gialla Oslavia: The Invisible Part of a Wine,” we travel to a little village in Italy called Oslavia that has been gaining popularity in the wine world for producing non-traditional, original wines with the Ribolla Gialla grape. The battle ground for both 20th century world wars, this area experienced complete destruction only to have strong independent winemakers return to replant its vineyards and rebuild. With Ribolla Gialla, you can drink Oslavia’s history.
