CUSTOZA

Custoza was included amongst our company’s produce in 2013, seeing as we had a large quantity of varying types of white grapes available. Another important challenge for the enhancement of a DOC of complexity, marked by the articulation of the different grapes used, which merits a position on the market congruent to it’s potential.
