La Villana - natural wines from Italy
La Villana is a natural winery from the Lazio region of Italy, created by female winemaker Joy Kull, who is actually American. After training at wineries like the nearby Le Coste, Joy fell in love with a local sheppard and decided to stay in the region. This is why many sheep are found on her labels, as a sign of respect to her Sheppard partner. Her wines are a mix of fun and easy drinking at the lower price end to complex and serious on the more expensive bottlings. Joy makes some wines in a concrete egg, which is unsual to find in the region.
