Our company was established in 1988 acquiring 5 Ha. of vineyards abut our house.
We live at the first feet of the hills in Ponte Ronca (a village of Zola Predosa) in a pleasant position with a view to the plains bisected by the road SS. 569 to Bazzanese.
Oaks, acacias, hawthorn bushes, wild roses, wild prunes and downy oaks are part of the local flora, which is partially spontaneous or reintroduced and carefully protected as the habitat of animals and insects which interact symbiotically with the vineyards. We grow a diversity of vines: Pignoletto, Sauvignon, Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon. Our wine production is about 60 hundredweights per hectare.

We can discuss it all, but only after being susceptible to listen the Dionysian story that wine narrates. Once in tune with its melody, let yourself loose along the sensations that might be or not in perfect harmony –we leave perfection to technique lovers- reviving the drama of that, which happened in the land and fields, in the vineyards all through the season.
In natural wine, the color, taste, scents and aromas are praised out of the norm, as Dionysius the god of wine, the god of nature did before norms were brought about. Our wines are riveting, a choral manifest of nature and land.
You can find us in Zola Predosa, 15km west from Bologna. Where in red earth hills, Pignoletto, Sauvignon and Barbera vineyards have been growing for centuries as well as in the hearts and minds of our peasants
Organic agriculture since 1990. In the cellars respect to that which happened in the fields prevails.
In 1992, we joined the Italian Association for Organic Agriculture (AIAB): ICEA (the Institute for Ehtical and Environmental Certification) that audit and certify the proper application of Organic Agriculture methods according to the Organic EEC Rules.
Our wines are produced with organically grown grapes. Organic Agriculture finds its roots in the quest to find a balance in the fields, respecting consumers’ and farmers’ well being. The due elimination of pesticides and chemical fertilizers is permitted by adopting cultural techniques and respecting the delicate biological balances that form a complex environment with a rich vegetation and wildlife hence making biodiversity possible. Therefore, organic agriculture tries to produce aiming at quality, allowing the reduction of social cost in terms of human well being, pollution. Consequently proposing itself as a feasible alternative agricultural system.
