  • About The Producer

The Lunae Bosoni winery was founded by Paolo Bosoni in 1966, The vineyards lie in the Colli di Luni, from the plain to the south of the river Magra, to the Apuan Alps in the province of La Spezia, the last corner of eastern Liguria, bordering Tuscany. The Alps provide protection from the cold northerly winds, while the Mediterranean Sea provides good ventilation and a remarkable temperature range, excellent for the quality and character of their wines.

Each wine is born out of a desire to express and rediscover the uniqueness of Ligurian native grapes such as Vermentino and lesser known Albarola, Vermentino Nero, Malvasia, Pollera Nera and Massareta.

Lunae uses natural fertilisers and harvesting takes place by hand. Their philosophy is to give voice to this most extraordinary territory.
