In the De Fazio Vineyard crest we’ve proudly used traditional Italian symbology to illustrate the essential qualities embodied in our wines.
The crest is our dedication to the art of natural, traditional wine making that acknowledges that great wines begin in the vineyard. It’s also your guarantee of genuine, quality, hand-made Estate wines, proudly displayed on every bottle that comes from the vineyard.
The single old-style goblet at the top of the crest represents the single vineyard where the wine making process begins. The three intersecting swords indicate the three key elements that the vineyard brings to its wines:
- Perfume and structure.
- Concentration and ripeness.
- Complexity and finesse.
The two Denaris (gold coins) represent the simple, but effective, environmentally friendly vineyard management practice that we’ve used for generations, and the ecological balance that we aim to maintain.
And the lady pouring wine from the urn symbolises handcrafted, natural, traditional wine making.
