Orzada Cabernet Sauvignon

Da den norske skipsrederen Dan Odfjell etablerte vingården vår gav han seg ut på et eventyr fylt med håp og utfordringer. ”Orzada” er sjøfartsterminologi for å seile mot vinden, før retningen er satt. Orzada-vinene reflekterer den gang vi satte kursen mot jakten på elegante og uforglemmelige viner.
