What is this Sfera wine about? A slightly chilled down liter bottle with a crown cap is just the thing for an apertivo or an impromptu dinner. Pair it with a fresh salad or a simple poultry dish with steamed rice and sautéed vegetables.
Sfera’s at once terroir-driven, but also an interesting take on liters, and bottling wine in general. Sfera collaborates with multiple small certified-organic farmers to bottle liters in limited runs, and are keen to give the producer credit by clearly putting the winery’s name and providence on the back label.
Another constant is that the wines are naturally made, and fall into certain guidelines that are lab tested before and after bottling. It’s a win-win, small certified organic producers get to do a fun liter project, and we get to explore Italy.
These are great introduction to natural wines, grape varieties, and growing areas. Native fermentation, 14 days on the skins in stainless steel. No clarification or filtration. Annual production: 1,000 total.
