This week on In the Drink, Joe Campanale is joined by winemaker Niccolo Barberani. The Barberani family collect and process their grapes grown alongside the Corbara Lake from more than fifty years. Since 1961,Vittorio Barberani cultivated the vine and obtained a very good wine for his bars in the district of Orvieto. He produced primarily Orvieto Classico, the highest local expression of the Trebbiano Procanico and Grechetto grapes. Vittorio, who founded the Wine House with a clear idea of producing very drinkable wines, began immediately to distribute its wines to nearby restaurants. In the 70s, Luigi and Giovanna Barberani started running the business, focusing on excellence and boutique wines and adding a touch of modernity and internationalization to their production that is constantly evolving. Nowadays Niccolo’ and Bernardo are giving a concrete and dynamic contribution to the estate, with that passion and love inherited from their parents.

"Biodiversity in the vineyard is very important. If you do that - you don't need [...] to use chemicals. Keeping your ecosystem lively is really [the advice] my grandfather left to me." [12:00]

This week on Just Food Stories, hosts Jacquie Berger and Alison Cayne take a trip to the Bronx with Lily Kesselman, professional photographer and founder of Brook Park Chickens. With the help of Friends of Brook Park, Lily brought a chicken coop to the South Bronx- but the question is, "Why?" Tune into this episode to learn about food access in the South Bronx, and why so many residents are volunteering with the chicken project. How did the arrival of chickens at Brook Park lead to the institution of a farmer's market in the area? Find out how Lily partners with other community organizations in order to be effective in bringing fresh and local food to her neighborhood. Thanks to our sponsor, Rolling Press. Music by Idgy Dean.

"These are true community projects. The eggs are a huge incentive for people who want to be volunteers... I think the need for fresh food in the community is the main attraction to the program." [11:00]

"The key and my passion is to tell people that whole grains can taste really good."

"In average supermarkets, grain selections are becoming bigger and bigger."

"A big trend in baking is that bakers are looking for local grains and freshly-milled flour."
