MEET THE MAKERS
OUR DI GIOVANNA WHITE WINE
The wine making tradition of the Di Giovanni family reaches back five generations. Today the two Di Giovanna brothers, Gunther and Klaus run the family estate with huge commitment to natural quality.
The wine making process is fully certified as organic. The organic grapes follow the pull of gravity all the way from destemming, through vinification, and on to bottling with minimal intervention. All Di Giovanna wines are 100% estate produced and bottled, with an annual production of 250,000 bottles.
We use the Gerbino Bianco in the Prickly Pear Body Cream. It’s a fresh, fruity and harmonious white wine, with aromas of white flowers, peach, melon and a hint of honey. As well as being certified organic, it’s also vegan friendly.

“Through my time spent working with spas, I knew that I wanted to create experiential skincare. I noticed that many natural brands were using ‘essential oils’ to fragrance their products, and these often have unpredictable allergenic effects. The attempts by some natural brands to avoid this issue by being unperfumed didn’t make sense as fragrance is a key component of the spa experience, and is vital in stimulating emotions. So, I teamed up with Dr. Francesca Ferri to create lab-formulated, allergen-screened fragrances, ensuring our products combine outstanding fragrance with outstandingly low allergenic potential.”
