Our Bandida selection comes from the famous house of Savian, founded in 1925 by Marco Savian. The name refers to the lawlessness of the area a century earlier when it was overrun by bandits, hencethe name Bandida.
Savian was one of the first wineries in Italy to begin organic farming. He was very concerned about the land and the effects of using pesticides and herbicides. He was so ahead of the curve back then that it wasn't until 1993 that organic farming actually became regulated. It's this kind of attention to detail that enhances their wine.
The Veneto is a small wine producing area in Northern Italy highly prized for the aromatic whites produced here, especially Pinot Grigio.
The combination of calcareous clay and carbonate are precisely what this grape thrives on and it shows in our selection.
The grapes are typically harvested early in the morning and brought to the winery in small bins so as not to damage the delicate skins. They are then sorted and gently crushed to preserve the aromatic properties of the wine.
The result is a lovely peach and pear blossom offering with guava and apple overtones that present more presence in the mouth than you would typically find in a lesser wine. Enjoy!
