A banker by trade, Luigi “Gino” Bardino long entertained exiting the stagnant office environment and devoting his life to wine, his true passion. After years of studying enology in his spare time, Gino finally followed his heart’s desire and in 2012 Vigne Rada saw its first harvest. Gino chose only traditional grape varieties to the region, planting one hectare each year between two distinct terroirs. Farming is sustainable, by hand, with help from the whole family. Like the man behind them, the wines of Vigne Rada are honest and straightforward—the result of a skilled artisan’s genuine passion for his craft. They deliciously reflect the coastal beauty of Alghero, and we are thrilled to offer them for the first time in the U.S.
There is so much contained in a glass of good wine, It is a gift of nature that tastes of man's foibles, his sense of the beautiful, his idealism and virtuosity.
