Founded in 2003, our farm produces with an eye to safeguarding the environment, through a conversion to organic farming that has characterised our activity in recent years. Thanks to the use of totally natural cultivation techniques, free of pesticides and chemical fertilisers, we have been certified organic since 2018.

Inside our wine cellar, we have created a wine museum with old relics, uncommon objects and old wooden barrels called “carratuna”. In addition, it is still possible to observe the “vinodotti”, special pipelines that allowed the wine to be transported from the wine cellar tanks directly onto the boats docked at the port.
