Our winemakers

DEVINITA

Our philosophy

At Devinita we are always looking for high quality Italian wines with an innovative and/or special story. New wine projects such as Ripawine’s. Ripawine’s vineyards are located in a relatively unknown wine region and was founded in 2016 with a mission: to put their region and their wines on the map. We are also looking for special wine projects such as those of Castello del Tegolato. Castello del Tegolato is one of the most historic wineries in Tuscany and perhaps all of Italy. They have become famous with their ‘Tegolato’ wines. These wines are aged all year round on the roof tiles (Tegolato). In recent years, these Tegolato wines were no longer made. But recently Anthony (owner) and Devinita’s good friend and winemaker Andrea Pizzolato decided to revive this project. That is why these wines will soon be available exclusively at Devinita. Finally, we are looking for new wine styles. Such as that of the historic winery Ca Dei Maghi. Paolo Creazzi, the winemaker, does not make traditionally heavy Ripasso’s and Amarone’s, but light-footed and elegant wines with a high drinkability. Given the diverse philosophies of the winemakers, we believe it is very important that the wines of our winemakers are presented to you in the right way: At Devinita we not only import Italian wines of the highest quality, we also import the history, stories and philosophies of the makers. That is why we love to share the stories behind the wines.
