Meet the Masut da Rive family from Friuli, Italy, and taste their wines. A nice aperitif to dinner at Towbar! 

"Masut da Rive is a winemaking family from Friuli, Italy based in the Isonzo region. Through three generations, they have learned to produce wine in the traditional Italian style while using both international and local grape varietals. As a small, family-run farm, they take every precaution to ensure each bottle is of the highest quality. From discarding excess grapes from the vine during the growing season to hand picking only the best grapes during harvest, Masut da Rive truly represents the union of traditional style with artisanal ability."
