Terroir: The Lovo family has been cultivating their land in the village of Vò in the Euganean Hills since the 18th century. It is here that their family has been rooted in the winemaking traditions of the Veneto. The proximity to the Alps and the Adriatic allows both cool alpine breezes and warm sea air to weave together promoting perfect acidity and aromas in the grapes. The rolling hills, warm days, and cool nights provide an ideal climate to grow international grapes like Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes: Maya Chardonnay is crisp and refreshing. Typical apple blossoms, bits of ripen pear and zippy minerals create a party that keeps you happy and wanting another sip. Maya Chardonnay is a collaboration between Francois Dufour and long time friend Salvatore Lovo. This wine is named after Francois’ second granddaughter, Maya, a spunky, quick-thinking girl. Pair the Maya Chardonnay with light dinners and lunches, book clubs, impromptu gatherings and good friends. Tasty with roasted chicken with potatoes and greens, medium cheeses or white fish and pasta.
