Peter Dipoli's his unique vision has brought him into the limelight of the wine world. He sought to grow Bordeaux varieties in an appellation where it’s typical for Schiava, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Grigio to grow. With his vision firmly planted in his head, he began growing Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in these mountains where the slopes are often almost vertical. This is tough terrain; no one looking to make conventional wine would ever think of stepping foot here, but Peter wouldn’t have it any other way. His intention is to make age worthy wines from this cool-climate area in northern Italy as he works his way to being one of Italy’s greatest.
"Voglar" comes from vines planted at 1800 to 2000 feet, no light feat. The fruit enjoys a longer growing season as it takes longer to riper, which in turn allows the fruit to intensify on the vine.
