The Sparkling Wine – Familia Schroeder
Heinz Theodor Schroeder settled down in Patagonia in 1927 and began working in the wine industry, their winery and vineyards are located in San Patricio del Chañar, Patagonia at the heart of the southernmost wine region of Argentina. Chief enologist Leonardo Puppato helped in the technical design of the winery and also conducts the winemaking practices.
During the construction of the winery’s building, fossilized bones of a large herbivorous dinosaur were discovered. This became a massive part of Familia Schroeder, with them specially designing a cellar house to showcase the original bones in the exact place they were discovered. After several years of study, the paleontologists concluded that the fossils belonged to a new species, so the dinosaur received a new name: Panamericansaurus Schroederi, in recognition of the family’s contribution to the excavation works.

Age: 75 million years (Campanian – Maastrichtian). Late Cretaceous.

Panettone and Bubbly Pairing
Pairing Notes – “The sweetness becomes more focused, zoning in towards the cake, icing and pistachio, leaving the chocolate to shine at the close. The rich ripe fruits of the sparkling wine tone down to gently soak into the cake.”
