Our

Wines

The deep bond to the land of the Colli di Candia, together with the love and passion for the vine, allow us to produce DOC wines, by working in respect of the territory.

In our production we can find two different white wines Kar Rha and Beatrice obtained from grapes Vermentino, a vine strongly present in our hills. Three red wines: Cybo, Ceccardo and Merlo. Our production range is enriched by an Extra Dry, La Bolla, and three flavored wines: Vermouth White, Vermouth and Cherry.
