This wine marks the beginning of the Cavazza wine making family; founded in 1928 and continuously operated under our family’s ownership and management. Blending traditional and innovative winemaking practices, our winery draws from sustainably farmed vineyards to create an outstanding portfolio of fi ne estate grown and bottled wines in perfect harmony with nature. Our artisan philosophy of wine-making wants to capture and transfer the real taste of our land, the terroir in which our vines grow, onto your table. Our dedication and commitment to the environment led us to run completely off the grid using solar panels.
