Via Arditi, 14/A, 31040 Nervesa della Battaglia TV, Italy
The emblem of the Giusti Wine project is the new, state of the art 5-floors underground cellar going 8 meters underground.
The winery was built in full respect of Giusti Wine’s philosophy, in complete harmony with the landscape that hosts it, which is subject to environmental constraints. Designed to reproduce the natural movement of the hills, it is overlooked by a vineyard to be even better integrated into the landscape.
Tenuta La Gatta

It extends on about 88 hectares, 24 of which grow fully classified Appellation d’Origine Protégée “Côtes de Provence” vines, which nest close to the sea and the Maures hillsides: they very much benefit from this exceptional location, which favours a strong and specific expression in the wines of this specially priviledged soil.
Loc. Pomario, 06066 Piegaro PG, Italy
Pomario is located in Umbria, between Città della Pieve and Orvieto, not far from Lake Trasimeno, at an altitude of 500 m. It is a small, very bright hillock isolated from the rest of the territory.

via Zottopera, 97012 Chiaramonte Gulfi RG, Italy
The history of Gurrieri is born from a family passion, in the scenery of Sicilian viticulture. Giovanni and Angela, born and raised with the agricultural and peasant passion of father Vincenzo and mother Graziella who have been producing grapes for fifty years, continue the family tradition and decided to produce grapes, wine, and oil in Sicily, in Chiaramonte Gulfi, in the province of Ragusa.

Le Vie Angarano
Contrà S. Michele, 4/B, 36061 Bassano del Grappa VI, Italy
A historical house surrounded by 8-hectare vineyard, a venetian family that numbers Dogi among its members, a direct lineage, an entrepreneur, a destiny. That is Giovanna’s challenge, the second of five sisters who committed herself to this activity with passion and determination.
Via L’Aquila, 8, 66010 Torrevecchia Teatina, CH, Italy
Buzzarone, family nickname for generations. The legacy of a dream – born and raised in the costumes of the company of the same name of which he is now the promoter. Near the age of majority, he is unconsciously sculpted by the arts of the winemaker and begins to metabolize what was the family dream, starting to make the land he owns flourish, a gift from his grandfather Agostino, his source of inspiration.

Contrada Selva, 10, 36054 Montebello Vicentino VI, Italy
We are a new company that produces and vinifies its own grapes in Montebello Vicentino. In our winery, we produce as sustainably as possible with territorial care and harvesting of grapes strictly by hand in small boxes to preserve all the aromas in the wine, with temperature control, and with soft pressure on the grapes. After that we proceed with the Battonage technique every two days until next spring, so wine is naturally strengthened by taking a better structure.
