Importer Spotlight: Indigenous Selections
Indigenous Selections is a specialized importer of Italian wines with a mission of showcasing captivating winemakers who produce outstanding, terroir-driven wines. All their producers employ traditional farming and harvesting methods, beautifully illustrating the potential and uniqueness of each grape variety. The wines they import are authentic expressions of Italian wines, and represent some great values.
La Spinetta makes wines that reflect the magic of the terrain and vineyard, not the hand of the winemaker. They are dedicated to their vineyards, and treat them with the utmost care, attention, and respect. This means farming according to biodynamic principles, keeping yields extremely low, and harvesting all fruit by hand. This hard work and dedication shows in the depth and quality of their wines. We carry several of their wines, from both their properties in Piedmont and Tuscany.
By using traditional methods in the vineyard and modern technology in the cellar, Bianca Vigna makes Prosecco and other sparkling wines that reflects the beauty and true representation of the Glera grape. The winery was founded in 2004 by the Moschetta and Cuzziol families who bonded over their passion for quality wine and food. Their sparkling wines are elegant, pure, and full of personality. We carry both their Prosecco and Spumante Rosa.
The history of the Ciacci Piccolomini estate dates back to the 17th century. It is located in the village of Castelnuovo del Abate in the southeastern part of the Montalcino appellation. They own 200 hectares of land, 40 of which are planted to vines. They believe being good stewards of the land is not only good for the environment, but also results in the finest wines. They farm organically, all vineyard work is done by hand, yields are kept low, and cover crops are planted. They primarily grow Sangiovese, but they also have international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah.
