Castello Di Verduno

Planet Candy

Life is too short for second best!

Castello di Verduno ligger i Verduno  i den nordlige del af Barolo. Baroloerne her er i den feminine stil og med en distinkt syre, som passer ind i min opfattelse af god vin. Masser af frugt balanceret med en vinsyre, der giver balance i det endelige udtryk.

I Verduno har de samtidig den usædvanlige drue Pelaverga Piccolo, som også har høj syre kombineret med krydret frugt, som særkende. At huset også er i besiddelse af Barbaresco markstykker, giver endnu en dimension af deres beskedne, men interessante udbud.

In the late eighties I was worried about the trend, with CD's as the industrys choice for music format, trying to skip the vinyls, so when I got a chance to take over a nice small shop in Copenhagen, I started the Candy project. As an extra feature, I only wanted to sell original pressings of records, so I started en import business to get the best quality and never parcitipaded in the danish distribution, as they sold cheap massproduced vinyl and that was also as bad as the CD's.

In the nineteens vinyl was scarce, but I imported all I could get in very early pressings, many in first print, to satisfy people going for the ultimate sound quality.

Today I sell the rest of my stocking, together with commission sales for old customers and local people with nice pressings and a bit of "ordinary" stuff!!

PS: I do sell a small collection of new records, local as well as good pressings from Nordsø Records and artists who show interest in my concept!
