Le vigneron

Alessio Dorigo is a bit of a character, whose personality oscillates between perfection and humour. Oenologist by training, he has been walking since 2012 in the footsteps of his father who also bequeathed him a very great knowledge of French wine techniques.

Following the motto “Free winegrowers”, Alessio Dorigo works to find a balance between tradition, history and technology. His wines do justice to his obsession with quality, which is regularly rewarded by a series of guides.
