Could you please tell us the story of your winery, when it was created and how it developed decades after decades ?
It was created in the 70s’ by my father and my mother (I am the second generation running the winery). In the beginning we had 12 hectares of vineyards and now we are managing more than 30. We make organic farming since 1994, so we were pioneeres in this farming
What sort of wines are you producing ?
We are producing 14 kind of wines from the Umbrian Region in Italy, the most fampus are Sagrantino, Grechetto e some rare wine like Vernaccia di Cannara
How important are your export distribution compared to national distribution ?
The export represents 40 % of the business.
What sort of distributors are your customers ?
Our importers are only distributors, we don’t export to HORECA Directly. Our importers sell the wine mainly to HORECA.
Why your wines are different from other wineries in your area ?
We have a long tradition of natural farming, we have also introduced Biodinamic farming and working horses to work the vineyards. Our wines are made by excellent grapes which is the most important thing for a quality wine.
Do you produce grapes in a organic or environmental friendly method, or with general methods ?
Yes : organic, biodinamic and without tractors in some vineyards.
Are your wines already distributed in Asia, and if not what are the countries you are looking for new distributors ?
We are distributed in Hong Kong and Japan, but most important markets are Italy and north Europe.
Is there anything you want to add about your wines, story or any news ?
We have a vineyards managed with a breeding of 400 geese, it is an important sinergy because we increase the soil quality with an environmental friendly method. The geese we produce on this vineyard are excellent too.
