A Viognier raisin wine born for the first time from a demijohn forgotten in the barrique cellar, and then rediscovered like a buried treasure!
Three years after planting, this grape’s first harvest (2010) was too small to be vinified as planned. Given the presence of raisining channel at the farm, Stefano (the cellarman) asked Hideyuki if he could try making a white raisin wine. This resulted in about 60 litres of a raisin wine that was absolutely unmarketable.
The demijohn of wine was then “forgotten” in the barrique cellar until the following September when, while preparing the winery for the new vintage, Stefano rediscovered it and decided to try it again… it was excellent.
And that is the story of Bulichella’s new raisin wine, since 2011.
