From the Neighbors: 'I Vicini,' which translate to "the Neighbors," is Peron's highly experimental project in which he purchases fruit from just across the border in Piedmont to bring back to his cellar in the Savoie for vinification.

Winemaking Notes: Favorita grapes are harvested by hand from vineyards that have been farmed both organically and biodynamically. A two week carbonic skin maceration lasts for approximately two weeks. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with indigenous yeast in neutral oak. The 'I Vicini' Favorita is aged in neutral oak and bottled without being fined or filtered and with no added SO2.
