Aquila’s Nest draws its meaning from the Mediterranean culture, family origins and personal interests of the vineyards’ owners. Neviana and Ardian both grew up in Albania, a country in the crossroads of Italian, Greek, Slavic and Turkish traditions. Ardian was raised in the Albanian countryside, where fruticulture and farming was part of everyday life, and along with Neviana, that’s the environment they hope their two young sons to grow up in. Aquila’s Nest was inspired by ancient mythological tales and our love for astronomy.
Through our wines we aim to share ancient Mediterranean stories. In the winery you will peek at the constellations. At the vineyard we hope to inspire our community… with myths of the past and stories of the present over a glass of wine, gathered around an intimate fire pit under the bright blue or starry sky.
Having a glass of wine is the perfect excuse to bring people together with the goal of starting conversations and creating new ideas on how to better serve our community; promote local art; talk about scientific discoveries and what their impacts are in our lives; encourage a healthy lifestyle by engaging with other local farms; organize activities for children to understand the value of the farming lifestyle and connect them to the outdoors.
