For those who love to venture outside the norm, we're paired our Vino Rosso Vulcanico from the slopes of Mount Etna with Mitja's magical Slovenian Pinot Blanc. Perfect if you want to impress at your next dinner party.

Nero d'Avola & Nerello Mascalese | 13% ABV | 2.25L (3 Bottles) | Vegan

Made from grapes grown on the slopes of Mount Etna, this medium-bodied and sophisticated red could only be from Sicily. The spiced cherry and red berry flavours couple with soft tannins to evoke the romance and fiery spirit of the island.

12 years ago winemaker Filippo returned to Sicily and bought a small vineyard on the slopes of Etna. It was in terrible condition, but he cultivated the precious old vines by hand. Today he owns 24 tiny vineyards, all at different altitudes on the volcano. He farms by hand or small machinery only, with minimal intervention.

The marbled design is intended to reflect Sicily’s volcanic earth. Its intense red, green and gold colours ground the design in the natural world - hot, sun-drenched soils, old gnarled vines and the shadow of Mount Etna.

1x Pinot Blanc | 12% ABV | 2.25L (3 Bottles) | Vegan

There’s something magical when you find a new favourite wine, particularly when it’s from an unusual region or made from a lesser-known grape. This Pinot Blanc is a fresh, approachable white wine that’s perfect as an aperitif. Aromas of jasmine and honeysuckle burst from the glass… Then a touch of Furmint gives the wine a soft, rounded taste in your mouth, followed by a refreshing lick of citrus.

Winemaker Mitja Herga is a passionate advocate for local varietals and low-intervention techniques. He has pioneered the use of Furmint - a grape usually associated with sweet Hungarian wines - to create complex, elegant blends.

The design of your Lot #5: Pinot Blanc is inspired by the geometric patterns of Slovenian folk embroidery. Its characteristic blue, black and white cross-stitch is reminiscent of traditional dress or ornate home textiles, while the bright floral motif is a nod to the fragrant perfume of the wine.
