The farm

The farm

The lands

Located in Vinci, on the slopes of Montalbano, the farm “il Giardino”, has produced wine and oil since the beginning of the 1950’s. It stretches for 15.15 ha and is nestled in the hills at around 60 metres (a.s.l.), a fertile land planted with vines, olives and a small orchard.

The vineyard

Selengaia, Tinnari and Pilandra. Alchemy of the elements within; that’s how our wines are made. We originate from Sardinia, so we do not compromise. We will only accept a natural process. Clementina, our mother, is a renowned artist and painter, so it was only natural that she should design our labels and determine the names of our wines. Consider, Altrove which roughly means “somewhere else” in English. This wine and its name evokes desire and escape. Altrove has a more international blend, and, like all our wines, is a result of our philosophy to create wine that transcends the traditional modalities of approval.

Our wines

In 2000 we made our produced our first wine in a friend’s wine cellar.

In 2001 we produced wine in our own newly built wine cellar; back then we used a chemical agriculture system.

In 2002 we switched to integrated agriculture.

In August 2004 we switched to organic farming.

In 2005 we started the official conversion to organic farming and have been certified by ICEA as an organic farm since the grape harvest of 2007.

In March 2007 the step to biodynamic farming occurred that we still carry out today.

The olive grove

The olive grove covers 3.6 ha and is divided into two sections. The older section of around 1 ha, is parallel to the vineyard, with around 400 trees of 7 different varieties: 4 moraiolo, frantoio, leccio, pendolino, mignolo, grappolo, and rossellino. The other, north facing, of around 700 trees: pendolino, frantoio, moraiolo and leccio. Other olive trees scattered over the farmland bring the total to 1,300 trees.
