Giovanna Maccario is the daughter of one of the pioneers of viticulture in Western Liguria, already bottling Rossese wines in the early seventies.
Twenty years ago Giovanna began taking care of the vineyards and cellar located in the township of San Biagio della Cima, in the heart of the Dolceacqua district, nestled in-between two steep valleys that lead to the Ligurian Sea, just a couple of miles away.
The vines, some of them over a hundred years old, are trained in the alberello system (Provençal bush-vines) and are planted at such an incline that no mechanized work is possible. All the tending and the harvesting are done by hand.
