Cheo in Vernazza
Bartolo, a native Vernazzan, and his Danish wife Lise have worked endlessly to restore his family land on the steep hillsides surrounding Vernazza’s town center.
The endeavor began as a hobby and later turned into a small business as the couple became interested in producing top quality bio wines. In fact, their brand Cheo won the “Green Award” for the best organically produced wine in Italy in 2010!
They are the only family in Vernazza who currently produce local white wine for sale and their production is extremely limited due to terrain conditions and weather hazards.
P.S. While visiting Cheo you might run into Ercole, the 97 years old dad of Bartolo!2
