A pet nat made from a gentle maceration of Nadia’s Grignolino and peaches found around the vineyards. The two spent two weeks together, before being pressed to bottle to finish fermentation. A gorgeous shade of pink, with vibrant bubbles and pure fruit, this makes for a joyful start or finish to any meal. We recommended storing this one vertically, serving cold & opening slowly as it is a lively one!

Grignolino, Peaches


Nadia Verrua’s family has been making wines in the hills of Monferrato in the province of Asti for over a century.

Their ten hectares of fascinating local grape varieties are farmed organically, planted over soft, sandy slopes in Scurzolengo, Castagnole Monferrato and Montemagno. They also keep a large number of hazelnut trees and it is little secret that Nadia’s mum Teresa makes one of the best torta di nocciole in all of Piemonte.

In the simple, old fashioned cantina beneath the family’s home, the wines are made with simple tools and raised in a mixture of big old botti, vats and cement, with nothing added at any stage.

The results are rustic, charming wines which are full of life and encapsulate all that is great about Italian vino da tavola.
