Far to the east of northern Italy, near the Slovenian border, lies the Tiare società semplice agricola. It is the life’s work of Roberto Snidarcig, the Italian with the Slovenian name, the “Pignolo” (bean counter, as his wife affectionately calls him). Absolute wine milestones, such as the Tiare Collio Sauvignon Blanc DOC, come from here. In 1985 Roberto started as a hobby winemaker on just one hectare of vineyards, today he collects the highest awards for his wines. At the latest with the “Best Sauvignon Blanc in the world” (Concours Mondial Sauvignon 2014) Tiare has reached the wine olymp.
