It began as a game, as a bet, the brilliant thought of Pierluigi Lugano, responsible Enoteca Bisson in Chiavari and small producer of wines interesting qualitative level, to achieve a sparkling, rather, a classic method, with a very technical innovative and seemingly extravagant. A refinement of the bottles did not, as normally happens, in cellars or caves, or as some have tried, in the high mountains. The place chosen, thinking of ancient wrecks of galleons under the sea, which have repeatedly returned food products (wine) excellently preserved intact the organoleptic characteristics, the seabed. A depth of 60 meters, with a constant temperature of + 15 °, twilight, back pressure and a number of factors favorable to a harmonious maturity of wines. Having said that, the thought became a project and finally something concrete and how he got to write even the New York Times, May 20, 2009 the first 6500 bottles of vintage wine 2008, a cuvée of Bianchetta Genovese and Vermentino, with percentages variable depending on the year, thanks to the collaboration Area Marine Park of Portofino, were immersed in the Cala des Anglais in the heart of the park, off the coast of Monte di Portofino.
