Winery Cantina Vermentino

Varietal: Vermentino

For several hundred years now, the Vermentino grape varietal has flourished over several parts of Europe. Although widely thought to have originally come from Spain, the Vermentino grape is now most closely associated with the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, where they are widely grown and are considered an important varietal for the island's economy. Vermentino grapes are particularly popular with vintners due to the fact that they are very easy to cultivate, and are especially resistant to rot and mildew. The vines are vigorous, and produce high yields of a reliable quality. The wines which come from the Vermentino varietal are generally pale yellow in color, high in acidity and pleasantly crisp, with flavors of green apple, lime and other bright citrus fruits.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
