THE PRODUCER : Durin
The Durin farm is located in Ortovero near Savona, in Liguria. In the area there are ancient winemaking traditions dating back to the 1800s and Durin’s production boasts advantageous prices and a style that is based on respect for raw materials in a combination of innovation, tradition and compliance with international directives. The company is a strong supporter of the thinning out of the bunches, useful to ensure a more uniform ripening and a higher quality for the grapes. The philosophy of Durin is to get all the flavor of an ancient history, of a passionate family and of their dreams and aspirations, besides all the balanced and refined taste of the territory that has always hosted it to the taste buds of those who drink their wines
