  • Product Description

      Alpha Zeta was started in 19 9 when Liberty Wines set out to
      produce a range of modern, fruit driven wines from the hil s outside
      Verona. Working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Mat
      Thomson, our aim was to work with growers (rather than buy bulk
      wine, which is standard among most wines from Verona at this
      price) to obtain ripe grapes (by reducing yields and picking later)
      and then, using Mat ís expertise, preserve these flavours in the
      finished wines. The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in
      Veronese viniculture.
      The vineyards are situated in the hil s outside Verona in the
      Valpantena Val ey. Cool cur ents blow down the val ey from the
      foothil s of the Dolomites, which helps to moderate the climate, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. This helps the grapes to retain
      their aromatic compounds and acidity. The soil is a mixture of clay
      and limestone with good drainage. The vineyards are south-facing
      and therefore warmer than other parts of Valpolicella.
