Notes from the winemaker: Once Bertholdi opens up and starts telling his stories, you never want him to stop. Your senses linger on every drop as his voice caresses you with dulcet tones.

He tells of an emotional life, of times in the vineyards and times on the skinks. Of ancient tree presses and the peace and tranquility of his days spent in barrels, where he would relax and reflect on his journey so far. He remains connected to his roots, in touch with the earth. But still possesses a vitality and hunger for new experiences and an infallible spirit that stands up to face whatever comes his way. For us, this is what a full life tastes like. Feel warm and comforted in his presence, his wisdom and humanity. Be inspired by the strength and confidence within you, connected to nature, sun and soil.
