Ducati Retailer Launches CorsaVino

by

Are you as devoted to fine wines as you are to fine Italian motorcycles?

If so, you may want to check out CorsaVino – a wine brand of limited availability launched by Arun Sharma, the general manager of MotoCorsa in Portland. MotoCorsa was named a 2007 Dealernews Top 100 motorcycle retailer.

Originally “not much of a drinker,” Sharma’s many trips to Italy ultimately exposed him to the passion of winemaking. Sharma says the Italian winemakers’ obsession with detail and the quality of each component – all ultimately for the purpose of enjoying life – resonated deeply with his appreciation for Italian motorcycles.

Determined to mirror classic traditions of Italian winemakers in his Pacific Northwest home, Sharma sought out Italian motorcycle enthusiast and winemaker Rich Cushman, a vintner renowned for his award winning wines. Thus CorsaVino was born.

CorsaVino’s four wines include Cabernet Sauvignon Il Mostro Rosso, Viognier, Syrah and an already sold-out Cabernet Sauvignon commemorative edition.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Il Mostro Rosso, limited to a production of 98 cases, retails for $314 by the case or $29 by the bottle; the 2007 Viognier, limited to a production of 54 cases, retails for $260 by the case or $24 by the bottle; and the 2005 Syrah, limited to a production of 217 cases, retails for $292 by the case or $27 by the bottle.

The sold-out 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon commemorative edition was limited to a production of 300 bottles.
