Gorgona wine is a very different kind of wine, and not just in flavor. While the wine is delicious, the big news with Gorgona wine is whose hands (or feet) are at work creating the wine. This wine brand uses convicted criminals as workers.

Gorgona is a beautiful scenic destination in Italy filled with great views and well, grapes. There still are criminals there, but these particular criminals have some very specific skills. Winemaker Lamberto Frescobaldi is putting the prisoners to work creating white Gorgona wine in an effort to rehabilitate them. The wine also holds a good standing among wine connoisseurs, so there's no need to let the hands that make it deter you from trying it.
