We are firmly convinced that for our job, for what we do every day with passion and dedication, terroir is key. But what does “terroir” mean? A lot have been said and written around the concept of terroir. Our personal interpretation of terroir is the following one: The soil composition, the particular climate conditions, the grape varieties specifically selected and implanted, all there is around the vineyards (rivers, lakes, mountains, volcanoes or oceans …) and also plant and animal species living there… but moreover the unique and not duplicable way they blend and coexist together…This is the wine concept of terroir and it plays a crucial role in the modern winemaking activity.
Taking inspiration by one of the main component of our terroir, and specifically one of the main component of our soil, we have named our winery “argillae” which is the Latin name for “Clay”.
