The Daily Meal: 101 Best Wineries in America, 2017

Massican #34. Massican borrows 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. Not much more than 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, wine director at Brooklyn’s Lilia Ristorante, is a particular fan, noting “Petroski consistently wows me with his talent for making impeccable wines.”
