A few words about Fuc e Flamis:

Winter 2004, a very cold one. You should imagine three strange characters gathered around the table: the point is to invent a name specific for the Schioppettino wine, special, unexpected wine, we necessarily had to find a special identity. After over an hour of fanciful thoughts, someone realizes that the fire in the heater was exhausting, and said to the others: mét un a lèn sul  fùc! (put a piece of wood into the fire!) Fuc? Fuc, fuc ...Fuc ... (Fire) and Flàmis (flames)! Here it is the name! The right name for a wine that is out of the ordinary, it appeared  with noise, clucking.. by fire and flames, indeed. This is how FUC and FLAMIS was born.
