Liguria is the crescent shaped strip of land stretching from Tuscany to France, known for its ruggedly beautiful seascapes, mountainous terrain and of course, incredible food and wine. It's here, nestled 12km inland and 300m above the sea, in the half deserted village of Vendone, that Claudio Vio and his wife Maria Grazia farm a series of tiny terraced vineyards (about 2 hectares), producing exemplary olive oil and wine for the region. The main grape they work with is Pigato (and if you ever see this wine on our shelves, scoop it up!) but they also have a vineyard called "Runcu Brüjau" which produces red varietals. "Runcu Brüjau" is local Ligurian dialect for "Scarpata Bruciata" which means "Burned Escarpment", referring to the unfortunate history of wildfires in the area. Their Vino da Tavola red blend is produced in very small amounts (only 50 cases in 2022) so this is a real treat! Herbaceous red fruit, just right acidity, low tannin and a pinch of pepper make for the perfect warm(er) weather red. Give it a light chill and enjoy with basil pesto pasta, margherita pizza or if you need a red to pair with seafood.
