  • La Vedetta is the brainchild of Marco Viglino, a passionate and driven young man who a few years ago decided to quit his corporate nine-to-five to focus on continuing his family winemaking tradition. Despite being a young cantina, the vines and the experience of the winemakers are second to none here. Using his family’s expertise, traditional techniques, and a passion and respect for the terroir is key to Marco’s approach.
