WE LOVE OUR WINE FARM
We have grown up in this splendid rural environment that, ever since we were children, has always stimulated us to participate in everything that takes place on our farm. Now that we are adults we still love this place and this work that we have inherited from our parents, continuing with the same passion and devotion. Our aim is the production of wines of high quality that transmit to the people who taste them the scents and the aromas of our territory and our traditions.
Our winery started production in the 1960's and bears the same name as the farm it is situated on. We are located on the hills of Santa Giuletta, heart of the well-known Oltrepò Pavese region, area of great wine tradition, particularly famous for the sparkling Bonarda and Spumante (classic method) wines of excellent quality. The 33 hectare one-piece property of vineyards extend all around the old farmhouse where in full autonomy we carry out the all activities of grape pressing, vinification and bottling.
The grass you see in our vineyards, that appear in the photographs, are not a sign of negligence and disarray, but that of a conscious choice to respect the environment, the territory, our products and our Clients. Our farming policy is aimed at obtaining a sustainable environment, by abolishing weed killers, by reducing vineyard ploughing that is cause of erosion, by reducing fertilizer and phytosanitary treatments. We have also decided to maintain our oldest vineyards that guarantee a small production but a high quality, and that new vineyards must have a high density of stumps per hectare, so as to minimize the production of each vine with a consequent higher grape quality. By starting off from very high quality grapes you simplify cellar work and enhance wine quality.
