"…Dreams…" from Chardonnay grapes. It has a sparkling straw-yellow color. To the nose it offers charm and complexity, with aromas of rare elegance and refinement. Exotic hints of ripened fruit, melted butter, vanilla and pastry prevail. In the mouth it keeps all the promises made to the nose, follows through on them, and embellishes them with gentle flavors and aromatic nuances that are fresh and persistent.

The Jermann wine estates lie in northern Italy’s celebrated Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, where Silvio and Michele Jermann, third and fourth generation family members, have carried forth the vision and innovative spirit of the family. Found on some of the most prestigious wine lists in the world, Jermann wines are the benchmark for Italian white wines and have long been sought out for their purity of fruit, complexity and intense minerality.

Remarks: Dedicated to the rock album entitled “The Joshua Tree” by the U2 released in 1987 and
more specifically the song “Where the streets have no Name”.

This wine was made with the 1987 harvest and throughout the years its name has undergone some
changes. The first 9 year cycle with the name “Where the Dreams have no end...”, had the peculiarity of
changing the colour of the capsule every year by drawing from the seven colors of the iris plus the
white (representing light) and the black (darkness) on the label, starting from the white anti-clockwise.
And, the fourth moon stages were illustrated too.

In 1996 it became “Were Dreams, now it is just wine!”, for other seven years, with a blue capsule where
the Hale-Boop comet, appearing at sunset from that year, was stylised.

Eventually in 2003 a step back to the origin with: “W.... Dreams ... ......”, by adding below it, the
year of the harvest and by drawing Mars (my leading planet) on its capsule. And indeed in 2003,
on 25th December, the European spacecraft Mars Express landed on Mars, which had never been so
close to the earth for 60,000 years. We interpreted its dots in “Where Dreams can happen” even though
everyone is free to take different inspirations.

With the 2011 harvest on the occasion of the 25th wine production year, we decided to make use of
only screw caps. It was an obligatory way: screw capping especially with top wine, can guarantee the
quality that every day we create in our vineyard first and then in cellar.

Curiosity: The label of “Where the Dreams have no end...” was used in the successful movie “The Parent
Trap” by Walt Disney, a comedy dating back to 1998, directed by Nancy Meyers and interpreted by
Natasha Richardson, Dennis Quaid and Lindsay Lohan (twins).

Hints at the 4th Editon of W.... Dreams .... .. ...:
After 9 years + 1, with the 2013 production year, a new edition of the “W.... Dreams .... .. ...”
began. When printing this new label, quite similar to the first one, on Thursday 4 December 2014
the “usual” coincidence occurred: 4 12 14 a palindrome date featuring the number 4 which stands
for the 4th edition of the “W.... Dreams .... .. ...”. With 2013 we’d like also to remind you of an
important star event: the Ison (Christmas comet) that first announced itself and then burnt on 28
November 2013 because it travelled too close to the sun along with a second spotted one which too disintegrated itself. Such a comet phenomenon was depicted on the capsule. It is also worth remembering the first landing in the history of man of a spacecraft called Philae of Rosetta on a comet: the 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on the 12.11.2014.
