Stefano Legnani – Big in Japan

Fast forward a few years, he has now more than deservedly become a cult name in the natural wine world – and every bit the rock star in a sophisticated natural wine market like Japan. In his previous life, Stefano was...

Dario Princic

Dario Princic has now for many years been a paradigmatic example and guiding light when it comes to masterful orange wines from Friuli-Venezia Giulia's Collio subregion, as well as being one of the most revered producers of this hallowed style in the whole world.

COS: A Sicilian Winery

COS winery, located on the extreme south-eastern tip of Sicily, not too far from African shores, was founded in 1980 by three lifelong friends: Gianbattista Cilia, Cirino Strano, and Giusto Occhipinti.

Maurizio Ferraro "Vinocinghialo"

Born within the impenetrable compounds where obscure vinnaturist secret societies have their quasi-mystical rendezvous, the mantra “vinocinghialo” - which can be translated as “wild boar wine” - has slowly but surely trickled down into the general vinnaturist consciousness. Well, at least in some parts of Italy. But what is vinocinghialo? Is it a state of mind? A bizarre weltanschaung? All...

Monte Dall'Ora – Natural Wine from Valpolicella

It is sadly quite rare to find true natural wineries, real ambassadors of tradition and terroir, in Veneto’s famed Valpolicella area. Although blessed with a vibrant land and an ancient history of viticulture, Valpolicella, world-famous for Amarone, has become a symbol of Parker-style oak-laden fruit-bombs. Fortunately, some lone heroes do exist and of late the trend seems to be gradually...

Carolina Gatti – The Best Natural Prosecco

Carolina Gatti is more than just one of the pioneer natural vignerons in Veneto’s prosecco area, sadly a land rich with ancient farming and vinification traditions and now sacrificed at the altar of chemical farming and production of serialized, industrialized so-called wines.
