    Background Information
    The Spinolas, one of Europe's oldest families, are traceable to the 9th century. Massimiliana Spinola took over the estate (and castle!) on the death of her father and immediately applied bio-dynamic methods. Her partner Henry is a Londoner with a passion for working with heavy horses and they are gradually moving towards working all their land this way.

    Tasting Note
    It's harder to make good white wine with no added sulphur than good red not least because the tannin in most red wine also acts as a preservative, but we love this dry, elegant white from Piedmont in north-west Italy. Sometimes dubbed 'the Chablis of Italy', this Gavi is a classy white with delicate stone and orchard fruit and some minerality.
