ESSENTIAE by Lunae Bosoni
Lunae Bosoni winery was established in 1966 by Paolo Bosoni and has since grown to represent the largest winery in Liguria and the benchmark for Vermentino production in Liguria, Italy and around the world. Their wines receive many awards and accollades year after year.
In 2000, Lunae started a new project called ESSENTIAE: a line of artisanal spirits and liqueurs crafted following the ancient recipes of the Ligurian and Mediterranean tradition.
This is the result of the collaboration between Diego Bosoni (Paolo’s son and winemaker) and Fiorella Stoppa, long-time expert in the artisanal art of making of liqueurs following the local tradition of cold infusion. Quality and love for authenticity are fundamentals for the realization of each product.
Diego and Fiorella personally handle the preparation of each liqueur, produced in small quantities only with seasonal ingredients, picked in their best maturation period. No preservatives nor dyes are used. The workshop is located at Ca’Lunae, the ancient 1700’s rural farm house that was completely renovated to host the winery, tasting room, a museum with local rural artifacts and a store.
