Perdaudin

WINE OBTAINED FROM DRIED GRAPES

Angelo Negro e Figli

A wine born of an act of courage. In 1987, Giovanni Negro visited the estates of Sauternes in France, and decided to import the techniques to vinify Arneis as a raisin wine. The intuition turned out to be genial: in that same year, Perdaudin was crowned best Passito d’Arneis of Italy.
