It's a poetic image by Albino Piona and his family, that has been growing grapevines and has been producing white, red and rosé wines in the heart of Custoza area since before the Unity of Italy.
Albino, “wine craftsman” as he defines himself, follows personally his “paintings”, that are his wines, from the first sprouts on the grapevines, to the harvest, to the wine-making and to the final bottling. He follows this all with great respect towards the tradition, but at the same time taking constantly care of the new technologies and possible improvements by applying modern techniques.
The show room is a sort of “Naturarte” space for thepublic. The bottles are in view, the barrels, vine shoots and grapes are used as nature design, between the cultural ferments of works of art, theatre, music that re-echo in this space. Passion gets mixed up with passion, Bacchus and the Muses together infuse high temperature to the show room Naturarte.
