forèsto agg.– Of place, remote, wild, uninhabited, foreign.
The sensation of feeling alien to a certain idea of agriculture and a sense of duty towards the plant and to the ecosystem that surrounds us.
Foreigners, in respect to a lifestyle, far from concrete walls, we have found our home in all that we can learn from a plant and the link to its territory. The choice was clear and determined, driven by motivations beyond rationality and entrepreneurship.
Becoming a peasant today is much more of an intuition.
It’s a selfless feeling that it is one of the few ways to have a sense of community, to find redemption, and to be able to repay nature with the only thing it asks for in return: its protection.
The practical approach to this circular agricultural lifestyle, although tiring, is quite simple. We do nothing but support the balance we are already witnessing. It’s a closing the cycle of creation and destruction of biological life within our ecosystem .
We make use of science and technology with common sense, maintaining an experimental approach. We strive to understand from year to year and from vine to vine which type of interventions are more effective and less impactful.
In the cellar, we employ the use of new pumps and machinery rather than synthetic interventions in wine. In an effort not to frustrate all that the earth has given us, and all we’d asked for, throughout the year.
