Our winery

The winery is the heart of the building and is run by the winemaker Giacomo Ansaldi. All the winemaking processes respect all the typical characteristics of the grapes and he strongly believes that “tailored” vinification techniques must be carried out according to each single grape variety. The organic wines he makes tell a story set in the past, where the main characters are still common people, dedicated to their work and family, always extremely passionate for the traditional values of their local identity and culture. For this reason, the philosophy of the production process is to respect the “terroir” and the intrinsic characteristics of the grapes. What sets the wines apart is that they are not defined by a specific variety, but related to the uniqueness of the place where they are cultivated: the final result of a complex wine experience lived to the fullest.
