Elemento Indigeno – A Wide Selection of Unconventional Wines

In Milan, on Wedensday 22nd May, I was pleased to take part in the launch of the new wine catalogue from Elemento Indigeno. This is a Compagnia dei Caraibi’s project focused on wines from producers that have sustainability, authenticity and innovation as their production philosophy.

Compagnia dei Caraibi is an Italian importer and distributor of spirits, wine, craft beers and soft drinks, sourced from all over the world and selected from producers who give the most attention to environmental protection, as well as inclusivity and ethics.

In 2020, the Elemento Indigeno project was launched; wines that, rather than just “describe” the terroir, are able to bring out the unique style of each producer with the aim of offering exciting wines.

WINE IS is the name of this catalogue that, in its 2nd issue of 2024, was dedicated to Drink without Prejudice.  This is a selection of wine that is collected and organised into 8 categories and 6 themes; they are more recognisable by their style than by their wine region.

The categories identified are: Wine is…a rockstar, roots, contaminations, a rematch, a guardian, a backpacker, conviviality, and finished. Instead, the themes suggest wines that could be suitable for different moments and events; from “Pizza Wines” to “Wines for Breakfast”, and from movie nights to those ideal for a pool party.

Here a few labels that caught my attention during the evening:

  • Séléné  – Beaujolais Cuvée De Printemps – Gamay
  • La Petite Odyssée  – Rouge Fourie – Abouriou, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Zahel  – Ried Reisberg Maurerberg – Riesling
  • Fattoria Albatrella  – IGT Toscana Rosso
  • Tenuta Il Nespolo  – Temperss Moscato Secco – Moscato
  • Johan Vineyards  – Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley
  • Tavares De Pina  – Terras De Tavares  – Dao – Jaen, Touriga Nacional e Rufete
  • Natenadze – Meskheti Meskhuri  – White Dry

Event Reviews

I live in a stunning and charming land, where wine culture is a pivotal element in everyday life and has been part of the culture for centuries.
I believe that wine tasting, although requiring a certain rigor, should be fun, and above all it has to be a sensory and enriching journey.
