Our approach goes beyond organic protocol, and it is based on the control and management of the vital processes of living organisms through the application of self-produced homeopathic treatments made out natural substances present in our farm. In this way the natural defenses of plants against pests, plant pathologies and environmental stresses such as drought, frost, hail etc. are stimulated.
To this we use other methods such as the reproduction of native microorganisms to stimulate soil fertility.
The work in the vineyard is done by hand from pruning to harvesting. “Being in the vineyard on foot,” allow us to follow the progress of our work from the soil to the grapes and monitor the phenological growth of the latter closely and intervene as soon as possible when necessary.
We apply the same philosophy in the cellar through the spontaneous fermentation of musts, without the addition of selected yeasts, adjuvants, sulphites or other enzymes.
In addition to routine chemical analysis of musts, we monitor the evolution of our work with qualitative analyzes such as soil and wine chromatography. Capillary dynamolysis allows us to assess the degree of vitality and nutritional value of our wines.

We have 2.5 hectares vineyards of which 7000 sqm in Paliano and the remaining in Piglio with vines of about 45 years.

Cesanese del Piglio DOCG ``L'Onda`` is born

Since the 2009 harvest, Maria Ernesta have chosen to work with her family vineyard at ``Colli Santi`` coming out with a new label to mark a new course. From this vineyard, to which her childhood memories are linked, was born the Cesanese del Piglio DOCG “L’Onda”.


The first self harvest

In spring 2014 Maria Ernesta extended the company of a further hectare of land with the addition of two vineyards planted in the 60s in Casalotto and Grotte. The same year she performed the first harvest completely from pruning to bottling, a difficult vintage. Passion and stubbornness, however, bring good results.


Holo-homeopathic viticulture

Maria Ernesta meet Geminiano. Their goal is to have a resilient agro system against adversity, able to cope with pests, diseases and climatic stress without the support of external products, capable of producing healthy grapes to make into wine.
