SPECIALTY VINES

 

We specialize in high altitude antique vines once planted in the Ligurian Alps. 

The original vines for making wine were brought to Europe by the Saracens from the Middle East as they settled the Mediterranean Sea coastal areas.  These vines were transported inland and can still be found in the Ligurian Alps.
