Francesco an enologist from the extreme south of Italy, Laura an event organiser from the north united by love for nature and art. For us, being winegrowers means managing the land responsibly, respecting biodiversity and following the natural rythms of the land.
In our house on the hills, surrounded by olive tress with splendid views of the sea at Punta Alice, you can stay over night and enjoy breakfast with natural and organic products. And of course, taste our wines with local foods in an informal and welcoming atmosphere.
We can be found in Calabria in the extreme south of Italy. Our newly established company is located between the Ionian sea and the Sila mountains, on the rolling hills of Cirò, facing the sea. In this area with its clayey and calcareous soil, wine has been produced for over 2,500 years.
Four vineyards, eight hectares of organic vineyard, copper and sulphur are used with great care and attention. Just green manure with minimal tilling in order to maintain soil fertility and favour biodiversity. We only grow native Calabrian grapes: Gaglioppo, Magliocco, Greco nero and Greco bianco, which give the best rendering of our terroir.
Our wine is produced by natural fermentation with local yeast and no added enzymes, natural decantation and minimal use of sulphites.
Naturalness, maintaining the grape’s characterstics and the embodiment of the terroir are our main objectives.
We have started, and will continue, our journey following these principles
