Many people don't know that Milan has a prolific natural wine scene, one that's on par with its counterparts in big European cities like Paris, London, and Barcelona. She speaks with Alessandro Ambrosi, the owner of an enoteca called Vinello a Milano, which specializes in natural, biodynamic, and organic wines. 

Here are links to the places, wines, etc., discussed:

Six natural wine producers from Lombardia to keep an eye out for according to Alessandro:

  • Barbacarlo in Oltrepò Pavese
  • Fausto Andi in Oltrepò Pavese
  • Gemma by Mirco Pauletti in Collina del Milanese San Colombano al Lambro
  • Josef by Luca Francesconi in Garda Colli Mantovani (Hills of Lake Garda north of Mantua, close to the Veneto border) 
  • Barbacan  in Valetellina (The link is  to the winery's epic Instagram account!)
  • Orto Tellinum  in Valtelllina
