Wine Without Walls

Wine Without Walls is the section of 5StarWines – the Book dedicated to certified organic and/or biodynamic wines. The goal of Wine Without Walls is to spread awareness of sustainable viticulture and promote wines that most stand out in preserving the naturalness of the land, the vines and related products. 

Grape varieties: 100% Glera

Colour: straw yellow with bright greenish highlights

This wine, created by the third generation of the Dal Bianco family, comes from vineyards cultivated using organic methods that observe Nature’s timing, without forcing the plant to produce a high yield and without using chemical fertilisers. The wine is sleek, flavourful and pleasant on the palate with the balance of acidity and softness enhanced in the lingering aromatic finish.
