Meet the mother and daughter winemaking duo crafting bright, fresh whites out of Piedmont
- Camilla and Silvana are the mother-daughter winemaking team, who since 2015, have taken Piedmont by storm with their deliciously light and fruity white wines. They share the same vision for a fully female-run winery, with a mission to preserve ancient winemaking traditions, their heritage and the environment. Their winemaking philosophy starts in the vineyards, where they nurture the grapes from vine to bottle.
- Cortese is the grape variety used to produce Gavi di Gavi, and grown in a tiny area of Piedmont. Camilla and Silvana champion the slightly-off-the-beaten-track region - its soothing gentle sea breezes and salty air influences the wine's crisp and refreshing character.
- Camilla and Silvana are winemakers with vision. Thanks to support from their Angels, the pair have been able to dream bigger than ever before. They not only strive to craft the most expressive Gavi di Gavi but also to boost the profile of the region, often referred to as the 'Chablis of Italy'.
