Winery

Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium wines. Together with the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of Italy's foremost oenologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have great capacity of development. In those years, the brothers, John and Harry, also purchased Bruzzone, a historic winery in Piedmont. Founded in 1860 and specialized in the production of sparkling wines, today is known as Banfi Piemonte.

Wine pairing notes

This white blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio works well with this braised sea cucumber. It respects the gelatinous texture of the ingredient and enhances its flavour’s profile. The wine is delicate and its lively acidity nicely combines with richness and elegance with the sea cucumber and the scallions.
