Great grapes alone are not enough
to make a great wine.

Lavagnoli family’s secret:
We courageously believe in our work.

Caring for a place
that’s first and foremost our home.

We work the land day after day with courage and determination, and make sure we look after a place that is first and foremost our home.
This beautiful commitment is the expression of acts we perform year after year and is repaid by the cyclical rhythm of the vines and the endless shades of green in our valley, wich is as lovely and cosy as a living room.

Courage, like that shown by the “Pigosso”

The eye is drawn upwards to where the two slopes meet, forming a breathtaking view.
Our winery is surrounded by vineyards, olive and almond trees that cover the hills with countless shades of green.



Here you will find the traditional hospitality of the Rame, the houses where it was once possible to enter and ask for a flask of wine. We no longer offer simple tastings, but opportunities to breathe more slowly in the shade of the vines.
