Luna Di Luna is located in the romantic vineyards of the legendary Venezia region in northeastern Italy. It is home to one of the most picturesque destination spots in the world, Venice.

Venezia sports a rich winemaking tradition made up of the Veneto, Trentino-Alto Adige and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Together they produce some of the best and most beloved white wines in the world. This Venetian blend of heritage and spirit inspired a revolution in winemaking that became Luna Di Luna.

Luna Di Luna literally translates to "the moon of moons." Luna is the root of the word lunatic, as it was thought that the crazies came out on a full moon. We've been around long enough to know they don't need a full moon to come out. The only craziness here is the prices they charge for their wines.

More than 70% of the wines made in Italy are red, but that is close to the same percentage of the whites made in this region. It may be the reverse of the norm, but since they've been doing this for a few thousand years, it's safe to assume they know what they're doing.

This classic, Italian white is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Grigio, and shines with delicate flavors of apple, pear, allspice and a touch of lime. No oak is used, so only the purity of the grapes and the stony, volcanic soils that give the grapes so much character and flavor prevail. It all comes though with balance and serenity that is a joy to savor.
