The use of the geographical name "Nizza" instead of the grape variety
concentrates tradition, culture and a unique territory in a short name. The production area of Nizza is limited by a specification with very strict restrictions on cultivation and oenology to ensure that the wines presented under the name Nizza are of high quality standards.
