Vegan Organic Natural Biodynamic

Why we love it

An Piota is a fantastic orange wine fermented and aged in amphorae, a natural wine obtained from a single vineyard chardonnay grapes from a 50 year old vineyard cultivated following biodynamic principles, with a very reduced yields. The amphora ageing adds complexity and structure to the wine.

An Piota is made in the amphora, from the long vinification on the skins (about a couple of months), to the pressing, with the wine remaining on the fine lees until bottling. The juice is fermented using the yeasts naturally present in the grapes, then decanted and pressed. The result is an orange wine with a complex nose, with fruity and floral notes, with a big palate, full, rich, fruity, elegant, this wine does not contain added sulphites and it is unfiltered.

The An Piota orange wine pair beautifully important dishes, including fresh cheeses. Orange wine doesn't get any better than that.
