Est! Est! Est! di Montefiascone DOC



  • an oddly named but famous DOC zone in the Latium region of Italy that grows mostly the Trebbiano grape to produce light white wine. The story behind the name is that a bishop on his travels sent his servant ahead to taste the local wines on the route and write ‘Est’ (‘it is’) when he found good wines; when the servant reached a tavern in this region he found the wine so good that he wrote ‘Est! Est! Est!’ on the wall.
