carlo petrini villa este coldirettiYou may remember that Cantele grape grower and winemaker Gianni Cantele was elected as the president of Coldiretti Puglia back in January of last year (Coldiretti is the Italian confederation of food growers).

This weekend he’s attending the group’s International Forum on Agriculture in Cernobbio on Lake Como as the Puglia delegate.

That’s Carlo Petrini (above), founder of the International Slow Food movement, addressing the assembly.
