Tasting Notes

Viburno is a richer, complex wine with a lifted nose of plum, blackberry and black cherries. A full flavoured palate follows with more plum and dark cherry notes, bound within a soft and refined cedar wood structure. A special wine that is best appreciated with lamb and beef, but equally comfortable with a robust pasta.

About the Winery

Located at the end of a country lane, Poderi Crisci is a family-owned vineyard and restaurant with Italian flair and a passion for traditional winemaking. For four generations the Crisci family have been immersed in the art of food and wine. Antonio, born and raised in Napoli, arrived in NZ in the early ’90s quickly making a name for himself in the Auckland scene with the establishment of Toto restaurant in Nelson Street. With his partner Vivienne Farnell they opened Non Solo Pizza in 1996, now an institution in Parnell.
