Avio currently cultivates 30 acres of grapes, which we break down into five blocks affectionately named after our Italian family and friends:
Zio Nino’s Lot – Zinfandel: 10 acres. We named our Zinfandel after Zio (Uncle) Nino because he reminds us of this fun, spicy and energetic varietal.
Zio Giorgio’s Lot – Cabernet Sauvignon: One acre. Zio Giorgio has always been somewhat of a classic; he's reserved in nature with refined qualities...just like our Cabernet Sauvignon.
Zio Giancarlo’s Lot - Sangiovese: 11 acres. Zio Giancarlo's personality is very hearty, robust - a true Italian through-and-through. A mirror image of our Sangiovese.
Zio Paulino's Lot – Pinot Grigio: Three acres. Zio Paulino is subtle, easy-going, and gets along with everyone. Paulino reflects our Pinot Grigio; a guaranteed crowd-pleaser which complements any occasion or any meal.
Milena's Lot– Miscellaneous: Five acres. Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Syrah, Aglianico, Orange Muscat and Pinot Noir. Milena brings forth the best of all of these varietals; her nature is one that is fruity and sweet when the occasion is right (reminding me of our Aglianico & Orange Muscat), with a deep complexity that surprises and delights you (similar to our Pinot Noir and our Petite Syrah). These varietals are produced in small quantities, which we bottle exclusively for our Wine Club.
