The Durin estate takes its name from grandfather Isidoro who was by the nickname of “Doro”, which in Ligurian dialect is transformed to “Durin”. The land has been in the Basso family for generations. In typical Ligurian fashion, the estate is made up of scattered plots and terraces of olive trees and grapevines distributed on the high hills in the Arroscia valley. At the end of the seventies, the Durin estate started its transformation thanks to Antonio Basso who left a medical career to dedicate himself to the care of the vineyards. Antonio and his wife Laura revived old traditions and concentrated on the indigenous varietals of the region.
