About: Onda, named after Giotto's (Gabrio's son) dog, is 100% Syrah, a grape you wouldn't expect to find on the small volcanic island of Pantelleria. Unsuprisingly, the Bini family have managed to make a superb wine from this seemingly lost varietal. Concentrated black fruit flavours, smoky, savoury characteristics and big acidity. 

Gabrio Bini, is based on the island of Pantelleria. 100km SW of Sicily, it is closer to North Africa than it is to mainland Europe. Formerly an architect in Milan, Gabrio moved to the island in 1995 and after many years of research, began producing wine in 2005. Inspired by the ancestral winemaking techniques of Georgia, he macerates his wines in large terracotta amphorae buried beneath the earth. His wines capture the energy of the small volcanic island and have gained a cult following for their ethereal characteristics, originality and sick bottle design.
