The period we are living in is the most extraordinary period ever, as it is rich in sanitary, climatic, social and economic changes.
Today, more than in the past, the destiny of the earth depends on us: we are the masters of our future which will be influenced by our good or bad actions.
The idea to make organic the cultivation of our negroamaro, primitivo and malvasia nera vines comes both from these considerations and from the awareness that in the last few years the market for the organic wines is increasing more and more (Italy is the second European country having a surface cultivated with vines equivalent to 101,300 hectares – Bioreport data with reference to 2017-2018).
The project started in June 2016 by signing the “Contract of Certification” with ICEA (Institute for the Ethic and Environmental Certification): the process of “purification” of the vines, avoiding the use of any kind of pesticides and chemical products, took three years. This period established by a set of rules for the “conversion to organic” came to an end with 2019 harvest, when the vinification of the organic negroamaro and primitivo took place.
Our organic red wines, the former from negroamaro and the latter from primitivo, have a low content of sulphites and also have the symbolic name of VigneSalve, that is “saved vines” from the neglect and from the savage advance of the solar panels on agricultural soil.
