Grandfather Orlando planted a small vineyard for family consumption in 1930 in Arola, more precisely in a place called “Groppone” (so called for the enormous slope of the land). My grandfather had many varieties of grapes grafted by his brother-in-law Oreste Cavalli. They were the most diverse ones: from the most famous such as Barbera, Bonarda, Sangiovese, Lambrusco Maestri and Grasparossa, Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, Sauvignon and Moscato Giallo, to the now disappeared ones as Uva Rara, Terra Promessa and others of which we know only the dialect term, for example “al Besmén”.
Our wines are produced in a completely natural way:
we do not practice any fermentation control, no thermal forcing, no chemical aid,
no clarification, no acidification or deacidification and no use of enzymes, selected yeasts or other.
We take great care of the soil and the vine. Pruning, tying, stripping and harvesting are done by hand. Every operation we do is aimed at improving its structure always with the utmost respect for the microbiological life of the soil itself. The grassing is spontaneous, with the presence of more than 70 species of herbs.
Our wines are produced in a completely natural way: we vinify all the grapes using only the yeasts present in the grape itself, we prepare different pied de cuve; we do not practice any fermentation control, no thermal forcing, no chemical aid.
In this vineyard there are Barbera and Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Sauvignon, Trebbiano, Lambrusco Maestri, Moscato.
All the single kind of grapes are vinified in purity and the wines are bottled as such.
