Italian connection for Smarter . . .

TUESDAY, MAY 15, 2012

Smarter is appointed by Italian wine producer, Sara & Sara Wines, as their official importer and wholesaler in the UK, the Baltic & Nordic countries and Russia.

Sara & Sara is a small family business that sets great store by its pursuit of excellence. Located in Savorgnano del Torre, in the North East corner of Italy, they keep technological intervention to a minimum, preferring to rediscover time-honoured techniques, such as rack-drying the grapes and not filtering the wines, which give rise to integrity and authenticity.

The vineyard, founded by Giuliano Sara, lies in the heart of Friuli's eastern hills, on a land rich with rivers and streams, woods and hills of clay marl and sandstone. Sheltered from the cold north winds, this spot offers a perfect microclimate for the development of the "noble rot" essential to elegant grapes such as Picolit and Verduzzo.
