When Tuscany’s winemaking revolution took off in the 1970s, whites of northeast Italy did the same. Quality soared and so did prices. Our Visionario is made to a similar recipe, a ‘baby’ Cru style white – creamy, characterful, fresh, yet top value.
"Excellent wine, will definitely buy again! Very smooth, staying on our favourites list"
Looking for a top Italian white? Chances are you’ll head straight for Friuli in northeast Italy. There you’ll find famous name producers such as Felluga, Jermann, Livorno, whose wines go easily for £50+ a bottle. Next door to these famous name vineyards, however, you’ll find our good friend and winemaker Alessandro Gallici, strolling through the vines with local growers. For this is where he sources the grapes for our much loved Visionario. The wine uses a similar ‘recipe’ to this region’s high priced whites – a blend of top local grapes as well as international varieties. Featuring Friulano as the main grape, plus Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Gewurz, Alessandro has made a really classy white, but as always keeps it at a great value price.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
