Cantina Cinque Terre

The 300 growers of Cantina Cinque Terre cultivate around 60 ha of some of the most spectacular and dramatically-terraced vineyards in the world. Using a blend of mainly three local grape varieties (Bosco, Albarola and Vermentino), some of the most unique mediterranean white wines are produced in these vineyards precariously perched on the Ligurian cliffs. 

Thanks to the significant investment made by the Cooperative in recent years, Cantina Cinque Terre is finally capable of producing white wines that are a true expression of this unique winegrowing area and much can be learnt about the surrounding terroir through these stunning wines. The dry whites are brightly saline and intensely floral and the sweet wine called Sciacchetrà made from air-dried grapes, is one of Italy’s most famous.

(Cinque Terre 2008) "Here's a rare and exciting blend of Bosco, Albarola and Vermentino from a cooperative winery in the beautiful Cinque Terre region of northern Italy.
