The Wine Observatory Sustainability (WOS) is an international no-profit platform aiming to foster sustainability in the wine sector, collecting and coordinating existing experience
The peculiar puzzle of our 55 microclimates are spread on 7 different hills from 300-400 meters above sea level. This great terroir provides unique characters to each of the vines and when blended together creates a wine of great complexity.Our vineyards are surrounded by forest and are co-planted with a variety fruit trees, which is known as promiscus agriculture. We have a natural biodiversity that creates balance and character in our vines and was inspired by our vineyard Ronco delle Mele "hill of the apples" where apple trees were planted to help with erosion.
