‘Emozione’ is Andrea and Michael Weingartner’s top wine and its name – the Italian word for emotions – speaks of the vintner’s passion for and dedication to winemaking. Situated in Ticino in southern Switzerland, Andrea and Michael Weingartner cultivate three hectares of vineyards producing a small amount of white wine but primarily Ticino red wine – 10,000 to 12,000 bottles a year.

‘Emozione’ is a merlot wine – the vintners’ main product – and has ripened in barrique barrels for 18 months.While tasting of rich fruits, it also has a smoky touch in the finish.
