We are delighted to welcome Luis Marculeta from Principe de Viana back to Direct Wine Shipments.
The Principe de Viana group was founded in Navarra in 1983. The group now comprises three bodegas - Principe de Viana, Rioja Vega and Albret, and has become Navarra’s principal exporter.
Bodega Principe de Viana controls over 1400 hectares of vines in the Ribera Baja area of Navarra and a new bodega was completed in 2004.
We hope you can join us to sample their excellent wines from Navarra, Rioja, Rueda and Castilla y Leon.
Piedmont ex cellar offer
We are delighted for the first time to shine a light on the elegant and classical wines of Italy’s refined terroir that is Piedmont. We are honoured to present the wines of 2 outstanding producers, Paitin and Rivetto.
This offer is very keenly priced taking into consideration the longevity and beauty of these wines.
Early ordering is advised.
“..The Pasquero-Elia family has made fabulous wines
for years, but now they are in a position to challenge for one of the very top spots in Barbaresco.”
(Antonio Galloni, R. Parker’s Wine Advocate)
“The Rivetto family winery sits more than 1,300 feet above sea level atop the Lirano hill, tucked between the communes of Serralunga d’Alba and Sinio. Rivetto’s hillside parcels of Nebbiolo surround the cellar, with the vineyards for this Barolo situated on the south/southwest slope facing Serralunga. The soils boast high concentrations of clay and limestone that yield powerful Nebbiolo.” (Wine Spectator)
