Cantine Lunae Vermentino Black Label Colli di Luni Bianco DOC

The Vermentino of the Lunae winery is one of the best creatures of Paolo Bosoni, founder and soul of this appreciated reality enclosed between the blue mirror of the Ligurian Sea and the green panorama of Lunigiana. Lunae’s philosophy is as simple as it is decisive: to exploit all the knowledge of its territory to transform a deep and rooted link over time into a wine that knows how to weave tradition and recent developments in the wine industry.

The Black Label is a multifaceted and harmonious Vermentino, of great persistence. Vinified and left to mature in steel tanks only, it is a white that enhances the most intimate characteristics of the most typical of the varieties of this beautiful area of ​​Liguria. In fact, it is surprising for its freshness and depth, elegance and fabric. Not only that, it is a Vermentino capable of surprising even after many years from the harvest, if well preserved in the cellar.

Gambero Rosso, one of Italy’s most prominent wine reviewers, has proclaimed his vintage as “The Best White Wine of The Year 2019” and awarded it with the Tre Bicchieri (3 glasses), its highest ranking, for 10 years in a row.

Sustainable and on organic conversion.

Cantine Lunae Vermentino Grey Label Colli di Luni Bianco DOC

The Vermentino of the Lunae winery is one of the best creatures of Paolo Bosoni, founder and soul of this appreciated reality enclosed between the blue mirror of the Ligurian Sea and the green panorama of Lunigiana. Lunae’s philosophy is as simple as it is decisive: to exploit all the knowledge of its territory to transform a deep and rooted link over time into a wine that knows how to weave tradition and recent developments in the wine industry.

The Vermentino Gray Label is a fresh and fruity white, aged in steel, which with its immediate pleasantness well represents the character of Vermentino Ligure, adapted perfectly to the Colli di Luni area, thanks to its preference for the Mediterranean climate, warm, ventilated and for the exposures close to the coast. The Gray Label of Cantina Lunae Bosoni is the most typical direct and immediate interpretation of Vermentino, lean and sapid, with a mouth center with a juicy fruit and a finish of beautiful freshness.

Château Macquin Saint-Georges-Saint-Émilion

Wines have been made at Château Macquin since 1885, when the first cellar was developed by François-Albert Macquin. François was the first to re-plant vines in the Saint-Émilion region following the phylloxera outbreak in the 19th century.
Château Macquin is located just three kilometres north of Saint- Émilion, in the small village of Saint-Georges, the smallest of all Bordeaux appellations. However, at its peak of 89 metres above sea level, Saint-Georges enjoys one of the best elevations on the right bank, giving the wines freshness and concentration.
The south facing vines are planted on clay and limestone soils and range from 15 to 60 years old. The vines are sustainably farmed, without the use of herbicides, fertilizers, or other harmful chemicals.

Domaine de la Clapière Gatefer

Nestled on the heights of the village of Montagnac, a few kilometers from the historic town of Pézénas, the Domaine de la Clapière is ideally located in the Languedoc region, thanks to its Mediterranean coast, its wild and authentic landscapes and its exceptionally mild climate.
The history of the estate dates back to the Gallo-Roman era, located as it was on the Via Domitia, the Roman road linking Italy to Spain, where there is already a vineyard.
A few centuries later, the place will become a famous and welcoming relay for the pilgrims of the Routes of Compostela. And that is ultimately at the XVII th century that the Domain Clapière find his name under the influence of Francis Clapier, wealthy merchant and owner of the time. Since 2006, the estate is operated and inhabited by Sophie and Xavier who make this heritage live with the help of a great team. And if a new page made of enthusiasm and modernity is written for the field, history is never far.

Rich and concentrated, the name of the cuvée Gatefer is that of a parcel of the property. It has been added to the Domaine de La Clapière from the 2006 vintage.

Certified TERRA VITIS.
