Gabrio Bini


Serragghia, Italy

Gabrio Bini’s Azienda Agricola Serragghia is located 100 kilometres south of Sicily on a tiny volcanic island. It was in 1993, that Gabrio decided to leave his architect job in Milan and turn to winemaking. He established his estate in 2000, and converted the property to organic then biodynamic principles. His wines are clear expressions of the wild place they come from.
