Dalla Cia stands for age-old Italian tradition and passion for innovation. Established in 2001 by winemaker Giorgio Dalla Cia (the originator of the most acclaimed Bordeaux-style blend in South Africa). The brand is synonymous with exceptional quality. Authenticity and progressive thinking across wines, Grappa and other speciality products. The name Giorgio Dalla Cia will always be associated with the iconic Rubicon, the first Bordeaux style blend in South Africa, which earned him the accolade of South Africa’s Champion Winemaker in 1980s and producer of the best red blend in the world in 2006.
As a result, this is a wine producer that is synonymous with progressive thinking and outstanding quality.
