These fertile lands boasting a long history have been the battlefield of many different rulers and empires since the dawn of time, yet only the ancient bond between man and nature has endured. The indestructible power of this bond has borne a divine fruit. This is owed to two giants who sailed the seas, carried by the wind, to reach these sunlit lands.
Grego is a dynamic and temperamental giant coming from the northeast, whereas Ponente is a strong and powerful giant coming from the west. They have been grandiosely and remarkably building up their empire on the fertile soil of southern Istria, so as to make it strong enough to overcome the threatening forces of evil. It is here, in this empire of wine and endless vineyards, that the two giants are united by the power of love for wine and wine tasting. Grego is older and more mature. Its wine is derived from ruby grapes flowing down from a strong grapevine. All humankind is tempted by the intense aroma of this berry fruit and yet only a man of pure soul has the pleasure to enjoy the complex and structured flavours of this divine drink.
A strenuous, young and playful Ponente is building up its empire even more vehemently. Its high-yielding vineyards sweep the surrounding countryside in the hope of turning it into a success story. Thanks to the freshness and exposure to the heat of the sun, its wine has a straw-yellow colour, while the intense green colour of the leaves and the surrounding nature add a gleam of green that emphasizes its freshness and genuineness. This rich and aromatic harmony of nature and true commitment are completed by citrus notes which reveal its coastal character. Its plainness and sophistication are a real challenge not only for the many wine connoisseurs, but also for the experienced Grego, thus, the antagonism between these two giants grows sharper.
Despite their eternal rivalry, they have succeeded in developing an indestructible cooperation which marked this fertile lands conjuring up special meanings, creating new symbols in order to refine their plainness.
