Shanghai (China), November 27, 2017 - Vito Donatiello was invited to a very exclusive Gravner wine tasting hosted by Mateja Gravner, daughter of the legendary wine producer Josko Gravner, at Vinism Wine Bar.

Gravner’s orange natural wines are made by leaving the grape skin in contact with the juice for 6 months in large handmade terracotta amphora buried underground and later aged for a total of 7 years in barrels.
