Funaro Passo di Luna

Funaro Passo di Luna is bright straw-yellow in colour with light greenish hues. A rousing bouquet due to its extremely elegant fragrance; well-orchestrated and delicate mouthfeel, fresh and rich in flavour, early-drinking, fresh and aromatic finish.

The Inzolia grapes come from the area of Salemi, located at an altitude of about 150 meters above sea level. The soil, rich in organic substances, has a loamy structure. The Zibibbo grapes come from the area of Santa Ninfa, located at an altitude of about 400 meters above sea level. The terrain, which is hilly, is primarily clayey-chalky with a good percentage of clay.

The Inzolia is harvested in early September, whereas the Zibibbo in late September. The grapes are harvested in the coolest hours of the day.

The grapes The grapes are fermented separately in steel tanks maintained at a constant temperature of 15°C. After the grapes have fermented, the wine is matured at a constant temperature. Lastly, the wine is blended before it is aged in the bottle.

The entrepreneurial project headed by Funaro siblings Tiziana, Clemente and Giacomo began in 2003, when they decided to capitalize on the grapes grown in the family vineyard for the past three generations, personally seeing to the production and surrounding themselves with motivated and competent coworkers who make up the current workforce at the Funaro vintner.

Alessandro manages the eco-friendly commercial farm and welcomes guests to the winery; Stefano, Totò, Castrenze, Pietro, Pietrino, Salvatore, Gino and Fabio skilfully care for each single vine and each olive tree; capitalizing on his expertise Rosario, known as Sasà, transforms the grapes into fine wine and oversees the whole production process up to the bottling; Pippo, Calogero and Giacomo, known as Giacomino, assist Rosario in the winery, unloading the grapes which have been gathered and seeing to the whole production process; Mario skilfully organizes the Italian sales network; Tiziana sees to the company management and the fiscal issues; Clemente personally oversees the foreign market, promoting the wines and, above all, the company philosophy. And, last but not least, Giacomo coordinates this likeminded and close-knit team.

“To us fine wine is the fruit of constructive benchmarking and sound cooperation between all team members.”

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.
