Home > SELECTION > PANEVINO


Panevino means "bread - wine" in Italy. This name originates from Gianfranco Manca's profession that he is wine-maker and baker(though he spends most of the time for wine today). He took over bakery from his uncle and has baked classic Sardinian breads. Besides small land with 30 different kinds of local grape varieties and many very old vines(over 100 years old) had remained in the family. This vineyards had been abandoned for a while, but Gianfranco realised the potential of the vineyards and began to revive the vineyards and produced wine in mid 80's. The wines had been consumed in his family and local area for long time and finally he decided to release his wine to out side from 2004 vintage.

He talks with vines and vines tell him what they want. The vineyards are maintained totally natural, no herbicides, no pesticides. Only tiny volume of sulphur is applied to prevent to mildew if necesarry, once a year or nothing. Vinification is also totally free from chemicals. He is thinking every wines have different personalities, so he often gives his wine different label and name every year.
