Estates and wineries producing our wines
The wines sold online on our site come from wineries with high standards in terms of quality.
Azienda Agricola Venturini has 12 hectares for the cultivation of vines. These terroirs are located in a hilly area, in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, at an average altitude of 250 meters above sea level. It began in business in 1963 using the experience and love for the terroir of at least three generations, from grandfather Antonio to his son Massimino and now Daniele, Mirco and Giuseppina. As stated in their business mission: ‘Our wine is our story. It reflects, in a way that is as precise as it is unexpected, the character of the Venturini family – one that is very much of a part with a historic winegrowing area like that of the Valpolicella Classica. Wine is part of our traditions and has evolved with them. It is the expression of everyday life – both today and in the past.’
The Azienda Giovannini was founded on the gentle slopes of the territory of Imola in the mid-60s. In this land of the encounter between Emilia and Romagna, which has always been synonymous with generous conviviality and sincere devotion to the cult of Bacchus, the founder of the family Garibaldo Giovannini marked the beginning of a passion that still, after fifty years, continues undimmed in the passion of his son Giorgio and his grandson Jacopo. From the cultivation of the vine to the ageing in bottles, kept in a tunnel inside the hill, Giovannini wine achieves the result of a perfect balance between a focus on the new and continuity with the past in its immutable passion for a product that has been handed down from generation to generation. Since the harvest in 2008, organic production in both the vineyard and the winery has led the company Giovannini to produce its wines with complete respect for nature and the healthful winemaking practices.
The Azienda Giglio Nero farming business was born in 2018 out of the desire, passion and dedication of Lorenzo Biancalani. Right from the very start, he has been passionate about everything to do with viticulture and has strictly adhered first to ORGANIC, and then to VEGAN, agricultural best practice in following his intuition that love of terroir and all production in his vineyards should respect the cycles and seasons of nature. On the hills overlooking San Giovanni Valdarno in Tuscany, a terroir with a noble vocation to wine, Lorenzo and his partners create excellent wines that reflect in their simple and decisive character the fruits of hard work and a vision for a more sustainable future.
Cantine Povero (Cisterna d’Asti, Asti, Piedmont) www.cantinepovero.com
The Cantine Povero story began in 1948 when its founder planted the first vineyard and felt a strong surge of emotion and deep attachment for his terroir, as well as the pride of continuing the tradition of his ancestors whose roots go back to 1837 – a precious heritage of ancient wisdom, experience and art that has been handed down in the Tumlin Family from those distant times until today. Ours is the story of a family and an alliance between old and new generations, which today enables us to restore past glories while welcoming the innovations of the future. 45 hectares of vineyards where a perfect symbiosis, a strong union between humankind and nature where each stage is supported by expert oenological practice that turns a glass of wine into true poesy of the senses: balance, immediacy, depth, preciousness.
Cantina Santa Maria la Palma – Alghero, Sardegna www.santamarialapalma.it
It all began in 1946, in the lands of the Nurra, reclaimed and bestowed to the farmers following the agrarian reform affecting Sardinia immediately following the Second World War. Expert and courageous hands, able to grasp the soul of a terroir that seemed perfectly fashioned for wine. So it was that one hundred of them decided to become partners and, together, found the Cantina Santa Maria La Palma winery in 1959. Today, past and future meet in every new technology and in all of the winery’s projects—offspring of a tradition that has always combined innovation and a love for the terroir. 700 hectares of land put to use to bring forth and give life to the diverse, profound nuances of Sardinian wine, with the same passion and dedication for both the labours of bygone times and the most advanced technologies of today.
Born of the wish of winemakers who have always shown their love for this terroir, the Cantina di Custoza, founded in 1968, is the perfect expression of the capability and potential of its members, who pool their production from an area of about 1,000 hectares, located mainly on the morainic hills south of Lake Garda. Cantina di Custoza’s wines tell the story of the land from which they spring and grow – the symbol of the indissoluble link between tradition and innovation. From the harvest to the table, the wines of Cantina di Custoza tell of the people and of the terroir which made them so special and recognizable and which, with every sip of tradition and love for the culture of all things wholesome and good, emerge to engage the passionate wine taster in a veritable sensory experience.
The Polvanera estate is located in Puglia between Acquaviva Delle Fonti and Gioia del Colle (just 20 minutes away from Matera) in a terroir that has always had an agricultural vocation, nestling deep in a unique landscape of vineyards, dry stone walls and oak barrels. Filippo Cassano, owner and winemaker has always wanted to focus on pure winemaking and an ORGANIC way of working with the aim of enhancing the Primitivo grape and other autochthonous vines. The Cantina, unusual and rather distinctive, is dug eight meters into the limestone rock, which offers the perfect atmospheric conditions for the wines to age and mature.
Wine for the Savini family has always been a passion, which turned into a reality for its founder Sor Domè in 1934 when his love for the land led him to turn it into a business. Subsequently, together with his son Onorato, a graduate of the prestigious Cerletti Enological Institute of Conegliano, he enlarged the winery and bought vineyards in the most suitable areas of Marche. In recent years, the family has further expanded the estates, renovated and converted the vineyards to organic production, and invested in the winery close to the sea. A bountiful land that extends from the blue mountains to the Adriatic where tradition and rural authenticity create the quality wines from an estate with over 80 years of experience.Azienda Agricola NARDI VITICOLTORI (Castellina in Chianti, Siena, Toscana) www.nardiviticoltori.it
Nardi Viticoltori’s adventure started in the 1990s when Enrico Nardi bought this property located in the hills of the Sienese countryside a few kilometres from Castellina in Chianti in the heart of the terroir of the “CHIANTI CLASSICO GALLO NERO”. Together with his wife and children, Enrico transformed his great passion for agriculture into a business that today comprises 40 hectares of land, about ten of which are cultivated with vineyards. Among the varieties of grapes grown here, the main red grape variety is the Sangiovese, the King of the Tuscan varieties that has made this wonderful land so famous throughout the world. The estate has been run since 2010 by Enrico’s sons, Angelo and Giacomo, who are firmly focussed on the wine sector after acquiring their passion and experience in two large Gallo Nero wineries. While remaining very much tied to the traditions of their terroir, the owners have tried also to add a soupcon of freshness and innovation to their wines and modern processing techniques so as to accentuate the very high quality of their products.Azienda Agricola Grappolo d’Oro (Cividale del Friuli, Udine, Friuli) www.vinigrappolodoro.com
Grappolo d’Oro, born in 1974 of the Martincigh family’s passion for viticulture, is located in the Colli Di Spessa, which sits at the heart of the DOC area of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. The approximately 20 hectares of terraced vineyards enjoy an ideal south-southwest exposure protected by the Julian Alps and are influenced by the nearby presence of the sea. The grapes ripen in a mild, breezy climate that favours the ripening of the grapes and a considerable accumulation of aromas in the skin of the grapes. Research on how to achieve the finest quality possible using the latest technologies and respect for tradition is this estate’s winning formula. Autochthonous and international vines that express the very heart and soul of the Friulian people. Fresh, fruity and drinkable wines—the result of hard work and a love for terroir.

In 1935, the Cantina Cooperativa Del Copertino (Cupertinum) was born from the ambition of 35 winemakers in this area of Salento who, renouncing individualism, set themselves the goal of handling the vinification of their grapes and the marketing of their wines themselves. Today there are about 350 proud winemakers who, each year, together pool their harvest from the sweet plains of Puglia, almost in the very centre of the Salento Peninsula. The total area for vine cultivation is about 400 hectares. The grapes, which come from the finest portions of the terroir and from vineyards cultivated mainly with the traditional Puglia bush vines, make possible the production of wines of excellence that inspire experts and enthusiasts alike.Ca’Tullio (Aquileia, Udine, Friuli) www.catullio.it

The Fattoria Ambra estate is located in the heart of the Carmignano DOCG, one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany, where grapes have been grown since time immemorial. This DOCG is the oldest in the world and, at the same time, the smallest plot of terroir in Italy. It was the Grand Duke of Tuscany Cosimo III de’ Medici in 1716 who issued a ban laying down the rules for the production of “Carmignano”. The Romei Rigoli Family has been the owner of this estate since the middle of the last century, where they have positioned their 20 hectares of vineyards among the finest crus of the terroir. Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon (known here as “Francesca grapes”) are the vines with which Ambra produces its wonderful wines.
The Cooperativa Agricola LA GINESTRA farmers’ cooperative was founded in 1978 in San Casciano V.P. on the rolling hills near Florence by a group of young enthusiasts with the dream of maintaining and restoring Tuscan agricultural tradition. So it has been only natural that since 1989 they have chosen ORGANIC FARMING as a sign of eco-friendly agricultural production without the use of any synthetic chemicals and while respecting EU regulations and standards laid down by authorized control bodies. The Estate today includes 125 hectares divided between arable land, pastures, woods and olive groves. Vine cultivation was not something they did when they started the business, but was added later, about 11 years ago. Currently, the estate extends over around six hectares where they cultivate autochthonous Tuscan grapes such as Sangiovese, Colorino and Canaiolo, and international vines such as Cabernet and Merlot. Natural flavours and scents resound through the wonderful wines that we offer.
Azienda Agricola Biologica SGALY (Ortezzano, Fermo, Marche) www.sgaly.it
The Azienda Agricola Sgaly estate was founded in the nineteenth century by the progenitors of the Sgalippa family on the gentle hills of the Marche, in the province of Ascoli Piceno. A terroir that has always been perfect for viticulture and immediately yielded excellent results with the Montepulciano, Barbera and Chardonnay vines. In the second half of the 1990s, it began a corporate restructuring plan that included the introduction of an innovative production philosophy based on the respect for the environment and therefore oriented towards obtaining healthy, authentic grapes, which had came to fruition in 2004 by complying with ORGANIC Agriculture Certification. The fine wines that the Sgalippa Family sells under the SGALY brand are the ultimate proof of the daily effort and commitment across all the 10 hectares of vineyards planted with vines (which are located at 300 meters above sea level).

Azienda Agricola Biologica-Vegana CANTINA CERRETANO (Orsogna, Chieti, Marche) cantinacerretano.wixsite.com/cerretano-vini
The Cantina Cerretano winery was founded in the early 1900s in the village of Orsogna in the province of Chieti in Abruzzo, a few kilometres from the wonderful Majella Natural Park. The founder Domenico “facciabella” (beautiful face) Cerretano began to trade wines throughout Abruzzo with a passion that has been passed down from generation to generation and that has transformed the estate over the years into a modern wine business producing both local autochthonous and international wines. Based on their close, respectful relationship with the natural environment, they decided in 2014 to convert to being an organic estate both in terms of grape production and wine certification. Then came a further big step in the years following: to produce wines that excel in every sense of the word, to produce ethical, cruelty-free, plant-based products for the sake of the terroir and the winery by becoming compliant with the VEGAN-OK product standard: tradition and authenticity, respect for life and nature, and taste—all in a glass of wine. A pleasant sensory experience.
