Description

About: Scarpetta is a Friulian inspired brand created by Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey and former French Laundry Chef Lachlan Patterson. Bobby and Lachlan teamed up to open Frasca, an authentic Friulian restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. They travel to Friuli several times a year looking to import local regional foods and recipes. Their passion for all things Friuli inspired the creation of their own brand, Scarpetta, in 2007. It began with 50 cases of old vine Friulano produced to be sold at Frasca. The demand for the wine was strong, and customers began to request new flavors. So they slowly expanded the line to include Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and a sparkling rose called Timido. Bobby’s love of Barbera from Monferrato eventually expanded the project to include this varietal as well. The ultimate goal of the brand is to make affordable everyday wines that taste special.
