“Le Giare” is the name of the vineyard where the grapes used for this special red wine are grown in very limited quantities. “Le Giare” means “the big stone” in our local dialect. So “Le Giare” is “the vineyard of the big stones”. This name comes from the fact that millions of years ago there was a river in this area, which flowed from the hills to the lake. The river still exists, but today it is much smaller and has left many large round stones behind, which are still used to build walls. In our vineyard, all the retaining walls are actually built with our own stones… or better…. with our own “giare”!
