The ‘fourth generation’ of a true winemaking dynasty begins anew as the riches of southern Italy’s diverse viticultural patrimony come to the fore. With her father Sergio's masterful enological skill in the cellar, Giovanna Paternoster has pedigree, know-how and resolve that ensure Quarta Generazione is already another legacy in the making in Basilicata’s most important wine appellation.

From some of the highest vineyard sites in Europe, Santa Maria La Nave produces Millesulmare and Calmarossa—extraordinary crus of volcanic inspiration and character. This distinctly Sicilian story involves the transfer of wisdom from one generation to another, a delicate balancing act with astonishing forces of nature and one woman’s vocation for pushing the limits of heroic viticulture.

This producer believes no two vintages should be alike and because of her decidedly hands-off approach in the cellar, Paola Riccio's wines candidly reflect the conditions, time and place of their origin. A rare find from Italy’s diverse viticultural landscape, Riccio Bianco from ALE.P.A., made from 100% Pallagrello Bianco grapes, will invite you to rethink how you personally define Italian white wines.

Wife, mother, winegrower—Noelia Calvar personifies a new generation in Spain that is writing a transformative page in the country’s viticultural narrative. Noelia Bebelia Albariño from Adega San Salvador de Soutomaior is rapidly making the tiny sub-zone of Soutomaior a focal point of Galicia’s D.O. Rías Baixas. Noelia Bebelia made its U.S. debut earlier this year, allocating a portion of its small, highly sought-after, production exclusively to Utah. Amazing but true.
