Tasting Notes

Prima Terra was born from the idea and passion and love for Cinque Terre in coastal Liguria. If you haven't been, put it on your list!

This is a blend of grapes planted on schistous soils and is very reminiscent of a northern Rhône wine.

Liguria

While perhaps more famous for its topless beaches, Liguria also produces some truly outstanding and unusual white wines. As the region is dominated primarily by coastal villages, it’s not surprising that the typical Liguria diet is rich in seafood - and as such, snappy, high-acidity whites are quite the M.O. One notable exception is the wine made from the idiosyncratic Pigato grape, which...
