The Producer

Founded two generations ago by Giovanni Iorio, the Lauranti vineyard was named after the team of field workers, affectionately referred to as “the graduates”, who helped him turn the nutrient rich soil from supporting more traditional agricultural fields into vineyards of carefully tended vines.
