He hails from a land known for its wines. And it was only inevitable that he fall in love with them. The traditional wines of Italy charmed a young Lucio and inspired him to explore the world of wines. He began his journey at the prestigious University of Bologna where he studied Agricultural Science and Wine Science. Not stopping at that, he went to acquire a Ph.D. in Wine Biotechnology at the University of California.
With time, his craft matured. He perfected the complexities of R&D, the alchemy of white and red and the vinification of still wines. He continues to romance wines in his capacity as a consultant to big vineyards, as our Master Winemaker, and a passionate connoisseur.
We've put all our passion into making our wines. So you can just open a bottle, and let those emotions flow! Savour every sip, and every moment.
Our wines have not just won people's hearts. They've also won much appreciation and many a prestigious award.
