Libera Terra, Wine and Food from Land Freed from Italian Mafia's Hands
Social entrepreneurship and activism comes in many shapes and forms.
I only recently heard of Libera Terra (or is it Libera) which amongst other things produces and sells wine and food from land freed from Italian mafia's hands.
It was founded in 1995 to create alternatives to the economic stranglehold the Italian mafia had on many localities.
Whether it's wines from Cooperativa Terra di Puglia in Brindisi region, Centopassi wine estate in Corleone area, agro-tourism of Portella della Ginestra or olives from Marro Valley.
They invite you to taste il Giusto di Viaggiare for a visit of some of their properties in one or more parts of Italy. Along the way, you will taste some of their offerings and meet the people you bring them to life.
A number of Libera Terra products will soon be available in the UK via Market Quarter.
To mark their arrival Slow Food London is having a Libera Terra evening on March 15 at 6:30 PM where you will be able to sample some of their fare.
