My research on owner/winemaker Valentina Passalacqua reveals her true hippie-dippy nature, in all its glory. She treats the vines like her children, and "reflects on their different identities and qualities, promoting them in their special harmony. And when they are ready, I share them with the world." Adorable. She also speaks of her childhood in this region of Gargano, and of her memories deepening as she continues to work the vines in her hometown. She honors the gifts of mother nature in her daily work and I feel lucky people like Valentina care so deeply about such things.
An excellent orange wine to start your journey. Ripe, fresh, juicy, and dry. Open with friends as this is a full liter bottle!
