Via Serica literally means "Silk Road", was an old path used by the famous traveller Marco Polo to connect East and West during the ancient times. East being China and West being Italy.
Today we bring the wines from the Italy, from one end of the Silk Road and the other from China.
Italy, is the world largest wine production and the oldest wine producing region in the world. More than 1,000 types of accredited grapes are grown in designated wine regions spanning across Italy. And there are more than one million vineyards collectively!
There are numerous Italian wineries from the old to the new which have yet to make a mark in the world. They may be small and produce limited quantities in a year. However, when you drink their boutique wines, you can savour the passion in the wine. Definitely, a work of art.
China - was one of the first few countries that produce wines in the history, however, it had stopped producing about a thousand years ago.
These days, more wineries in China are aware of international wine competitions and the rising popularity of wines. China wineries are staring to produce high quality wines to participate in these competitions to market and sell their wines internationally.
We are delighted to be the first partner in Singapore and Asia to market Wines of China.
Other than wines, we are also passionate about the food.
In Italy, there are not only wines, but also their food. The tradition of Italian cuisine is based on wheat products (such as bread and pasta), vegetables, cheese, fish, and meat, it usually prepared the manner to preserve their ingredients' natural qualities, appearance, and taste.
Italian cuisine emphasise on lightness and healthy nutrition with natural unprocessed foods, and tends to vary greatly not only with the seasons but also between the various regions of the country.
The cuisine is born of the people, the territory and the seasons, and is not pulled out of nowhere for no rhyme or reason.
Notable is the Panettone from Fraccaro which is baked in the same way since 1932. Fraccaro uses the same sourdough since 1932 and has no preservatives in their products, be it, Panettone or Gondoeta amongst many.
