Raboso Piave is the finest indigenous vine of the Treviso district, one of the few native varieties of Veneto to survive the invasion of phylloxera that destroyed Europe’s viticulture in the late 1800s. The wine it produces has a dry, austere taste, fairly hard and sharp. It is aged in casks that blend and heighten the fragrances and flavours of the vine with the pleasant tones of oak. Ready to be drunk from its third year, this wine can be aged for several years. It is ideal served with spit-roasted and white meats, game, roasts and ripe cheeses.

From the seventeenth century until 1935, in Carrù there were two famous spinning mills for silkworms. A traditional beer, even beer.
Golden and opalescent, it is an easy to drink Blanche. On the nose, summer scents of orange peel prevail; when tasted, it is the coriander that invades the mouth, closing in a well-balanced finish. The body is velvety, thanks to the wheat, and the persistent foam.
Pair it with finger food, fried and fish-based main courses or sushi and sashimi.
Color: opalescent blond

Pinot blanc, South Tyrol’s most important grape variety, has awakened from its slumber and has evolved a calling-card wine for the region. Schulthauser, having been vinified and bottled for the first time in 1982, is the consummate South Tyrolean Pinot blanc. This wine isn’t ostentatious, but is the consummate fresh-and-fruity Pinot blanc, the enjoyment of which is found both in its creamy softness and its lively acidity.
A premium aperitif and summer wine, it is also quite versatile when it comes to food pairing: it goes well not only with seafood and fish but also with delicate dishes made with wild fowl. It is especially recommended as an accompaniment to South Tyrolean Schlutzkrapfen.

The term “mutemuka” can be roughly translated as “a sake made with pure intentions or without ornamentation.” Mutemuka’s signature Sake is made from two varieties of rice the brewery grows organically. For their Moto [starter mash] they use Kaze Naruko a strain of ‘Sake rice’, but the majority of the rice used is Hino-Hikari a prized ‘table rice’. Sake made with table rice tend to be more robust and richer in palate weight due to the proteins, fats and amino acids that become involved in the fermentation. The ‘Mutemuka’ is initially aged for about half a year at room temperature before release resulting in a beautifully full-bodied Sake. Mutemuka has dominant aromas of yeast and fragrant rice and a rich palate with notes of Jasmine rice and white radish with an earthy, savoury taste. This Sake has great food matching applications because of it’s unique savoury palate. Perfect with salty snacks or ingredients like coastal greens or oysters; seafood dishes; or hard cheeses like Tête de Moine.
The freshness, finesse, and brightness of Brut Premier make it the perfect wine for festive occasions. Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.
