Cavinona: Northern Discovery Case

Take a tour through the majestic vineyards of the Italian North and discover the best of Italy’s cool climate wines. This discovery case will take you from the precipitous terraced vineyards of Valle d’Aosta and Lombardia to the ancient black volcanic soils of Soave Classico, through the shadow of the Dolomites in Alto Adige and onto the rolling hills of Friuli’s Collio. If you have never experienced the range and mystique of Italy’s lesser known Northern varieties, this case is for you.

This is a 12 bottle case which includes 4 whites, 1 rosé and 7 reds. Total cost is $375 plus delivery. Delivery fees are estimated at $17 in Ontario (shipping locations, fees & COVID-19 update). Offer available until June 21. All wines will ship the following week.

Cavinona is an Ontario-based wine agency that specializes in indigenous Italian wines. Our portfolio comprises over 70 wine producers from across the Italian peninsula, offering the best selection of Italy’s vast range of native varieties in Ontario. We work with small, family-run wineries, many of which have been passed down through generations. Our winemakers are guided by values of quality and tradition, and practice minimal intervention in the vineyard and in the cellar. Though diverse in their products, they are united in their passion to produce wines that offer the best expression of the native grapes and soils of their region.

All our wines are available by the glass or by the bottle at Terroni restaurants, and by the case through our online store at Discover Cavinona and enter a world of wines that are true to grape, people and place.
