The Daily Meal: 101 Best Wineries in America, 2016

Massican #16. Massican takes its name from Monte Massico, a coastal mountain in Campania, in southern Italy, where Bacchus himself reportedly once hung out — but the inspiration for its wines comes from the north, from wineries in the Friuli region. Just half a dozen years into his winemaking journey, Brooklyn-born winemaker Dan Petroski has already received a ton of praise for his wines, all of them white: a sauvignon blanc and a chardonnay of great quality, a racy blend of Italy’s greco and pinot grigio, and a wine called Annia, which combines tocai friulano, ribolla gialla, and chardonnay to memorable effect. David Sawyer, sommelier at Husk in Charleston, thinks the 2015 edition of this last wine is the best yet. “Petroski consistently wows me with his talent for making impeccable wines,” he says.
