Masterclass with Angela Maculan
Mon, 24 April 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM MDT
Join us on Monday April 24th at the beautiful VIVO downtown for a classroom style tasting with Angela Maculan, of Maculan Winery ....
Born just after the harvest of 1977, Fausto Maculan jokes that his daughter Angela was the best thing to come out of that vintage since it was not a good year for wine. She took her first steps in the winery and proceeded to follow her father’s every move there; indeed she became the mascot of the Maculan winery team!
When she was old enough to use scissors, she started picking grapes for pocket money and as she grew, she continually pressed her father to allow her to help the winery workers in all of their activities: bottling, packing the cases and of course, selling wines to customers. She has been accompanying her father on his business tours and winery visits from a very young age and has had the unique opportunity to taste wines from the most famous wine areas of Europe and the US. This is how her passion for wine was formed.
Today, Angela is fully immersed in the family business. Along with her father she hosts guests at the winery and plans all of the events which take place there. In the cellar, she gives input on the blends of the wines as well as other aspects of the winemaking process. She is also the main contact for all public relations inquiries. Her job takes her around the world, representing the winery on a global stage. However, her first love has always been the United States and she has become solely responsible for this market. The U.S. was the country she visited on her first business trip and she has since travelled almost everywhere in the US and enjoys it so much that she often spends her summer vacation travelling there, too!!
Since April 2016, Angela is the President of the Seminario Permanente Luigi Veronelli, a new challenge faced with her usual enthusiasm.
