Pazzo di Vino’s story is really a story about a passion for wine that began generations ago, with the DiVito family mastering the craft of winemaking in the scenic hills just outside of the Eternal City, Rome. For countless generations, the DiVito family would work the vines on their land to create the wine that they would enjoy for the year. This was not an uncommon practice in that part of the world! In those days, there was little else to drink besides spring water and wine, so wine making was more about living than luxury. Wine just happens to also be luxurious, and great wines are the perfect thing to share with great friends and family.
