Tradition is our watchword. Ever since our family has been making wine, we have endeavored to revive traditions in the full respect of the ancient values and preserve all the rich heritage of the past revisiting it with a modern twist. Timè, Eycos, Sofè and Zoe are ancient greek words meaning respect, pride, wisdom and family: the values to which we have dedicated the wines of our high-end line. Wines are a means of expressing the rediscovery of noble sentiments worth sharing.
