LA TERRAZZA is a selection of wines suitable for the longest of lunches or an evening spent al fresco. These heady, complex wines come from some of our most sought after producers.
Nino is deeply passionate about the grapes and terroirs of his native Sicily and is a pioneer for organic farming in Marsala. From a beautiful vineyard not so far from the Mediterranean, this Zibibbo wows with citrus, spice and all things nice. Do as they do in Sicily, and serve it alongside some raw fish.

From their old vineyards high in the hills of Irpinia, Antonio and Daniela champion almost forgotten native grape varieties and make some of our favourite wines in all of Italy. This Greco comes from some of the highest vineyards in the region and wows with complex notes of minerals and smoke.
Nino has been growing grapes in the hills above Dolceacqua for over fifty years and is as old school as they come. This pure, rustic take on Vermentino is almost impossibly savoury, with a deep saline character that makes it one of our favourite wines to enjoy with spaghetti alle vongole.
Seb is somewhat of a master at producing the kind of textured, nuanced rosé we love. A field blend of red and white grapes grown on vines almost a hundred years old this is compact, powerful deep ruby in colour, there is a depth and complexity here that is often difficult to find.
Le Primeur 2019
Gianmarco and Clementine are one of the most respected growers in Italy and the vineyards they tend around the volcanic shores of Lago di Bolsena are amongst the most beautiful we have seen. This beautiful take on aromatic variety Aleatico is perfumed with heady aromas of exotic flowers and spice with a pleasant herbaceous note adding real intrigue.
From his home in the Mâconnais, Jérôme makes wines that taste as if they might have come from another world. This vibrant Gamay from a parcel of old vines is planted over pure limestone in Uchizy and offers bright, raspberry-toned fruit, just a little tannin and a clean, mineral finish.
