With minimal intervention and low sulphur, no artificial chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides – the cornerstones of good organic winemaking – critics argue that you can actually taste this living environment, the wine’s ‘terroir’.
Organic wines - Querciabella
Querciabella is one of the producers we really champion here at Honest Grapes. Giuseppe Castiglioni, an industrial entrepreneur and lifelong wine lover purchased a single hectare of vineyard on a Tuscan hillside and set about creating an estate soon spanning the breadth of the region. Querciabella's philosophy is to create extraordinary wines, without causing harm or disrupting the delicate balance of nature. With 69 hectares of vineyard in the prime Chianti Classico region, located in the communes of Greve, Radda and Gaiole their vineyards represent the largest extension of Biodynamically farmed vineyards in Italy. Querciabella lay claim to the rich Biodynamic soil and say it has become the single most important ingredient in their award-winning recipe.
