Mudgee, a region of New South Wales in Australia is not only noted for the production of noble red wines such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate and soil are ideal for breeding high quality sheep which provide the “Grand Cru” of Australian wools, and it is right here that Vitale Barberis Canonico has its Greenhills farm. At Greenhills, the most prestigious Merino sheep, namely Saxon Merino are raised. Their fleece is unrivalled in terms of colour, light, structure, length, and softness, all the qualities which make up the “style” of the wool. Greenhills is a fabric without compromise or sensationalism, with which Vitale Barberis Canonico wanted to get to the essence of Merino wool. Just as the wine grower takes care of the vines to enable the grapes to absorb the desired characteristics, thus every procedure during sheep breeding respects the nature of the animals and their location, while the following processes have the more difficult task of preserving and enhancing the wool’s characteristics. The virtuosity of the weave adds to the effect with touches of light to create movement, without resorting to evident patterns. Greenhills, without a doubt, is dedicated to those who understand about subtle differences.
