Mark Shannon is a Californian who went to Apulia for a short holiday with Fruili native Elvezia Sbalchiero, nursing an affec-tion for the Primitivo grape that rapidly turned into an obsession. Entranced by the region with its fresh, uncomplicated cuisine and timeless approach to living, the pair made it their home and established A-Mano to craft their handmade, affordable wines. ‘To make expensive wines is contrary to our way of thinking,’ says Elvezia. Theirs are superb value, fruit forward wines made with much passion and flair. Within one year of its conception, A Mano had been named Red Wine of the Year at London’s International Wine Challenge.
