From the estate...
We are a family of winegrowers and, for over 150 years, we have been passionately devoted to the cultivation of Nebbiolo. This is a rare grape variety that, over the centuries, has adapted to the Valtellina, a land like no other, where everything is still done by hand. For 5 generations we have always waited for “the time it takes” “the right waiting time” and it is this that sets the pace of our work. Time and humility are what make our wine the purest, sincerest expression of this land and of the people who cultivate it with such dedication. This was the lesson we were taught by our father Arturo, without letting ourselves be influenced by passing fashions and conventional tastes.
We are convinced that the outstanding qualities of Nebbiolo from the Alps means it is more than worthy of its place of honour on the international market of fine wines. Without this worldwide acknowledgement, this age-old activity would simply not be economically sustainable for it rejects any idea of modern mass-production.
Here are the wines. I have one bottle of each in the shop and I'm hoping to get some more. If you want something for Father's Day...this is what you need. I mean let's be honest...you're probably gonna make the old man grill the meat anyhow...why not get him a bottle of wine you know he'll enjoy? Hell, maybe he'll share with you.

As I've said, I only have a single bottle of each in the shop as I just wanted to make sure we got something before the masses really found out that it was in stock. If you want a bottle...snag it now. If you want one of each or a few of them...please contact me ASAP and I'll reach out to Katie as fast as I can text. We will only get one drop of these this year so I don't want to hear any whining about how no one new there were in stock. Once they are gone...they are gone.
Success! Feel free to
