The winery is owned by Dario Stroppiana,who, aided by his wife Stefania, takes care of every production process,from the vineyard to the cellar. For as long as the dimensions of the estate allow, the business will continue to be an exclusively family-run concern.
This means that meticulous attention can be dedicated to every production phase.
The vineyards occupy an area of 4.5 hectares, with an annual production of 35,000 bottles, part of which are located in the famous and highly-prized cru of Bussia, where Stefania was born.
A year Work in the vineyards is characterised by particular attention to the quality of the product sacrifi cing quantity; the bunches of grapes are selectively thinned in July and August to allow the remaining grapes to ripen in the best possible way.
Harvesting begins when the grapes are perfectly ripe. Soft-pressing is followed by traditional fermentation on skins for a period of 7 to 12 days with frequent pumping over.
