Prima Materia Vineyard & Winery is owned and operated by former chef Pietro Buttitta, and has quietly been building one of the deepest dives into Italian wine and grape knowledge in California. Through the Prima Materia podcast you can spend hours exploring the world of grapes such as Sangiovese, Aglianico, Sagrantino, and many many more. Pietro discusses not only California history with Italian grapes but how they grow in the vineyard, what the winemaking is like, aging, and then food pairing and descriptors through comparative tastings.
