The moon, ever-changing and loyal, loving and cold, beautiful and mysterious, shrouded by a sense of immortality, has fascinated humankind since the beginning of time. In fact, humans have always endeavored to grasp her sensuality and learn her secrets for living in harmony with mother nature. Over the centuries the regular course of its rising and waning has greatly influenced the popular beliefs. The phases of the moon with the mysterious celestial waves that accompany them regulate human behavior, tides, plant growth, and rainfall. They have great importance in sowing, planting, crop care, harvesting and storage. This fascination and these reflections have inspired our line luna: wines that express nuanced hints and reach deep in the soul of guests charming then the magic of a dream.
