Who We Are: 

With over two decades of experience crafting exceptional wines, we are proud to be the first winery established by Andrzej Lipinski and his family.

Our dedication lies in exploring unique grape varieties, employing ambient fermentation, and pioneering techniques that redefine flavor profiles and intensity. Notably, our expertise in appassimento and whole-cluster methods epitomizes our commitment to unlocking the full potential of each vintage while maintaining harmonious balance. In 2016, we introduced our RAW line, emphasizing pure fruit expression through ambient fermentation and concrete maturation, with wines bottled unfiltered.
