BEHIND THE WINE

BEHIND
BOOK XVII

A tribute to the viticulture wisdom, research and scrupulous documentation of ancient Roman philosopher, Pliny the Elder, this limited-edition wine, is worthy of its illustrious place on the global fine-wine podium. In the same way that Pliny stressed the significance of viticulture practices in the winemaking process, so Book XVII is the fruit of 20 years’ exhaustive recording and analysis of countless vineyard variables, from soil composition and weather conditions to oceanographic influences.
