Old Vineyard

This brand comes from the oldest vineyards and each variety takes inspiration from the different personalities of the family’s grandchildren. The refinement and elegance of Pinot Noir and the delicacy and seduction of Riesling were associated with girls while Malbec was clearly inspired by males, strong, stout, with a great personality but at the same time warm, sweet and original.
