Delicious Whites Producers

Bodegas Perica:  Bodegas Perica is a Family winery with strong traditional values that was originated in 1912. They have over 140 acres of vineyards in the best areas of Rioja Alta, controlling in this way the total production of the vineyard and careful development of the cellar process. Our vineyard emblem, The Olagosa, which gives name to their aged wines, is the logistical center of the winery, and very convenientily located in San Asensio, center of the Rioja Alta.

Monchiero Carbone: The Monchiero Carbone farm is located in Canale, in the centre of the village, in a nineteenth century stately farmhouse, which hosts in its basement a large and fascinating historical cellar, untouched for over two centuries.  This is how the history of the Monchiero Carbone winery began, thanks to the entrepreneurial Francesco who vinified his first vintage in 1990 with the help of his father Marco: there were only 2000 bottles of Roero Superiore for his thesis, in addition to those of Barbera Monbirone.  But it was only with the 1995 vintage, as soon as he finished his studies at the Scuola Enologica di Alba, that Francesco rolled up his sleeves and started production, with the determination and passion that distinguish him, and with the absolute conviction of the great potential of Roero, which in the 1990s had not yet expressed its strong territorial identity.

Vicentini Agostino: The family Vicentini produce their well regarded wines in the Val d‘Illarsi, in the Soave and Valpolicella region. Agostino works with his wife Teresa and their children Emanuele and Francesca, and they produce wines from three very distinct terroirs, at two very different altitudes. The first terroir is on volcanic rock within the Valle dei Ciliegi (valley of cherries), this land is largely responsible for their Valpolicella and Soave Casale. The second is on limestone in the commune of Terrelunghe, where Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave are grown.  Agostino was early to bottle his own wines and was also the first to return to viticulture in Campiano; those very same hills whose fortunes have now changed, thanks to a combination of climate change and a total transformation in the way the world enjoys wine, high altitude red is now treasured.

Pasetti: All the wines that Pasetti makes are coming from the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park. These wines represent the will to remain connected both to local places and native grapes. Harimann and red Testarossa are made with Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes, some other wines are obtained from Trebbiano d’AbruzzoPecorino and Passerina white grape varieties, instead. Pasetti also makes a wonderful sweet white wine made with Moscatello di Castiglione grapes, an ancient vine variety that has almost disappeared.  At a time when the most part of the viticulturists used to implant international grapes like Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay, Mimmo decided to focus on native grapes. He was sure they would be able to give excellent results if implanted in proper soil. Because of his certainty, Mimmo recovered an ancient vine variety : the Pecorino. The bet was won and today the pecorino wine is giving great opportunities to the whole Abruzzo wine-maker community.

Cantine Pellegrino: The Pellegrino family has always personally overseen the activities in the vineyard and in the winery, and the family is still today, having reached the seventh generation, involved daily in the management of the company. A long family history made up of respect, care, love and dedication, of values handed down from father to son, which today make it one of the greatest families of Sicilian wine.  The Pellegrino vineyards are located in the westernmost part of Sicily, which is characterized by a great variety of microclimates. The territory boasts the highest vine-covered area in Italy as it is considered the most suitable area of the island for grape growing. Here in fact the intense light, the dry climate, the fresh soils, the winds coming from the south and the strong atmospheric temperature range, create the ideal conditions for the production of quality wines.  It was the Phoenicians who, between the eighth and seventh century BC, introduced vine cultivation in these territories. We are therefore in the cradle of the native Sicilian vines: grillo, inzolia, catarratto, grecanico, zibibbo, malvasia, nero d’avola, nerello mascalese and frappato, these vines have always been used here for the production of great wines.

Viña Cartín: Bodegas Viña Cartín was founded in 1980 and is located in the valley of the Salnes. Since its inception the winery has produced wines with one unique variety, Albariño, and its vineyards have expanded to more growing areas such as Vilanova of Arousa, Meis and Portas. Viña Cartín owns 49 acres of vineyards with vines averaging over 30 years of age. The optimum climate combines with the unique characteristics of the land to support an ideal ripening of the grapes with a perfect balance between acidity and sweetness.
