HEAD WINEMAKER: PASQUALE (PAT) DEL-GATTO

Pasquale (Pat) Del-Gatto is a fourth generation winemaker, hailing from Santa Croce, a small town of about 4000 in southern Italy, approximately 75km north of Napoli. Pat's great-grandfather was the town's winemaker. Old world winemaking skills and secrets were handed down to Pat's grandfather and then to his father. Pat's winemaking philosophy is intuitive, thoughtful and rich with the history of his family. The result is a wine with character; memorable and distinctly Italian.
