WHAT WE ARE

We are what over time they taught us to be: those who love the beautiful and the good, nobles and farmers, careful winegrowers, protectors of the environment and of its infinite personifications.
We like doing things in the right way, conforming dociley to the rhythms of the seasons, without forcing what nature prescribes, without pretending otherwise. 
We love to work within the realm of the beautiful, certain that the aesthetically beautiful will bring to light only good fruits.  
We like to infuse into our wines all that has been gifted us and everything to which we bear obligation and respect: the distinctive character of our local grapes, the splendidly kaleidoscopic beauty of our local corner of earth, the incredible range of eloquent interpretations given us by our cellars, the utterly unique and profoundly expert fund of knowledge of every person in our winery.
We are aware that all of this constitutes an enormous, and unshirkable, responsibility. 
But we know no other road, nor, summing up everything, are we interested in any other.
