More about this winery:
From the love for their territory, the passion for the vine and the farming traditions that have been handed down by the Federici family for 4 generations, the winery “La Baia del Sole” was born in the early 1980s, located on the border between Liguria and Tuscany, in the town of Luni from which the best wines were already leaving 2,000 years ago to reach the seat of the Roman emperor Augustus. Second of two brothers, Luca Federici, grew up in the wine industry in the family business and graduated from Pisa in 2011 in Viticulture and Enology. A member of Assoenologi since 2012, in 2016 he was awarded the “Future Prize” at the Mondial des Vins Extremes competition as the best young producer.
