Nestled on the Ligurian border with Tuscany, near the remains of the ancient Roman city of Luni, Cantine Lunae has been pushing boundaries of Ligurian wines since Paolo Bosoni inherited the winery in 1966. Paolo remains at the helm of what is very much a family enterprise. His wife Antonella Bertolla and children Diego and Debora are integral parts of the business.
Their vineyards, totalling around 45 hectares altogether, lie in the Colli di Luni, the last stretch of Liguria before you arrive in Tuscany, and comprise small parcels, none larger than a couple of hectares spread around the coastal plains and foothills of the Apuan Alps. Vermentino is their mainstay, but they also makes several other successful cuvées from other white and red varieties, and they're keen to experiment with rarely seen local varieties like Albarola. The family's dedication to quality is helping to create incredibly vibrant and intense wines from local grape varieties which are a true exprssion of their soils, Mediterranean climate and their respectful viticulture.
