Producer

Vigna Lenuzza consists of 8 ha of organically farmed vines in the small wine village of Prepotto, located in the heart of Collio and Collio Orientali, near the Slovenian border. On its third generation, Daniele is furthering tradition commenced by his grandfather in the 50s. He is supported by his wife, Tanika, a wine-loving South African. The family has always been committed to farming without any chemical products whatsoever. Intervention in the cellar is low in order to preserve tradition and terroir. Everything the family does is with heart and passion.
