His wines are among our greatest discoveries, offering Mediterranean flair and flavour at a price that makes them accessible to all.
What makes the popularity of these wines even more remarkable is the fact that they are made with relatively little-known, Italian specialities such as Pecorino, Passerino and Montepulciano. These grapes thrive on Walter’s organic vineyards, protected by the Apennines to the west and by the gentle Adriatic sea breezes from the east which help prevent disease.
