OUR WHITE WINE
A UNIQUE BLEND FOR A UNIQUE TUSCAN WHITE WINE
Studied by Casa Dragona’s oenologist, the white wine of Terra Dragona is composed by three types of grapevines: Chardonnay (50%), Viogner (33%) and aromatic Traminer (17%).
Treatments for making a vineyard strong and rich are many and last very long time. But this Vineyard entered full production already with the vintage of 2014, when we had the opportunity to taste for the first time a bottle of Filòs, Terra Dragona’s first and unique white wine. Filòs is not only an excellent white wine, it is also a wine full of amiability and friendship nuances…
This vineyard was created, in facts, in April 2011, thanks to the help and collaboration of many friends , who strenuously worked for its creation and development.
From this origin comes out the name of the Vineyard (Vigna Filia – the vineyard of friendship), and for the same reason, its fruits – our white wine – has been named Filos (from Greek: friend).
