Being one of the pioneers of Georgian (Kvevri) winemaking amphorae in Romagna has been a truly inspiring privilege for us.
Amphorae are a wonderful tool: they have proved to be an incredible accelerator and concentrator of the aging of Alban wine, without, however, losing even a pinch of its varietal profile !
And then in 2013, Vitalba was born: a well-succeeded gamble, now white “flag” of our company.
