The Prelius label reflects the fluid nature of a coastal lake which was once where the vineyards of the Maremma region in Tuscany are today. As the area has evolved, it has established itself as an excellent location for viticulture and winemaking. The Prelius vineyards are located on a hilltop along what was once the shore of the ancient lake, five kilometers (just over three miles) from the Tyrrhenian Sea.The winery has received high-profile recognition for its contemporary label design, including a “Gold Label” award from Vinitaly’s International Packaging Competition and a “Red Dot” award by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany.
