Butterfly on the Bottle

Di Vaira


Entrance to Di Vaira

Directly beside the wine estate of Eucaliptus, the one of Vincenzo di Vatia is situated. Like next door, one can buy in-house olive oil, fresh fruit and vegetable - also white and red grapes from their own vineyard. Di Varia has been making wine for a long time. For 25 years he's been selling it as Vino Sfuso - open wine which is filled into brought-along bottles. In 2002 he started to merchandise his wine in bottles, too. And meanwhile he even has – besides the steel tanks - five barriques in the cellar of his house. There his Bolgheri Superiore is maturing and going to be sold in 2008 for the first time. The labels of Di Varia are decorated by coloured drawings of butterflies. At Di Varia one can – just like in the neighbouring estate of Eucaliptus - purchase a Bolgheri at low price, at the moment six to eight Euro per bottle. They were typical examples of their kind which can be drunk joyfully without claiming to be international first class wines.
