NOTES OF THE WINEMAKER
PIWI are grape varieties resistant to fungal diseases. They are the result of a constant
research of man and of a selection, which has been going on for several decades, of GMO-free crossings
between varieties of Vitis Vinifera (for wine) and American vine varieties (resistant to
fungal diseases), admitted to all effects for the production of quality wines. The
advantage is the minimum number of treatments performed and the consequent impact
environment for their cultivation.
For this wine, a classic white vinification is carried out with indigenous yeasts at a controlled temperature. After which the malolactic fermentation begins in the wine. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle through the residual sugars of the first fermentation, at a temperature of 15°C and lasts about 2 months. Sparkling wine with the bottom.

Combinations: we propose to experiment with new and unusual combinations with
flavors and aromas of this still little-known wine. We recommend gently turning the bottle upside down for a completely innovative PIWI EXPERIENCE tasting.
The label of "Ho'opa" is "narrative": we invite you to open it and read all the stages of Pizzolato's journey into the world of PIWIs! The Hupa or Hoopa language belongs to the Athabaska language family, spoken by the Hupa people along the lower Trinity River in northwestern California and, prior to European contact, also by the Chilula and Whilkut. The literal meaning of the native name is: "Language of the people who inhabit the Hoopa Valley".
