Con Vento was named "With the wind" to describe the maritime breeze-swept vineyards. The two yellow zigzagged lines on the label represent the movement of the wheat exposed to the winds.
Con Vento is made of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. It is an aromatic, full-bodied white with a rich, viscous mouthfeel. With floral, wild herb, grapefruit and fresh apricot aromas and flavours on the palate, this white is well-suited to fish and chicken dishes.
