Overview

Since 1984, we have been importing wines from small, family-run vineyards in Abruzzo, Italy.
Over the years, this zeal has grown, our knowledge has multiplied and we’ve developed some lifelong friendships with some exceptional winemakers.

Such a wealth of first-hand experience, and an abiding love for the region and its wines, culture and food, makes this a truly unique tour.
