Botromagno Gravina

Produced from 60% Greco and 40% Malvasia, Gravina Bianco is one of Italy's most ancient white wines. Like many of the world's most iconic wines, the grape varieties that traditionally produced this wine originated elsewhere but found their ideal habitat in Puglia. The wine gained DOC status in 1983 and is currently only produced by Botromagno, which has had great success with this wine in multiple export markets.  From the 2013 vintage onward, the vineyards that produce Botromagno's Gravina DOP wines are certified Organic.
