The name Zýmē, from Greek, means “yeast” and the winery logo represents a grapevine leaf and a pentagon, symbol of five basic elements: man-vine-earth-sun-water. Tradition and innovation are the two Zýmē’s wines complementary tracks. In Celestino Gaspari’s heart, wine is yeast for the mind, and a yeast that grows the Zýmē project.
