ANNAFRANCESCA wines are made with the grapes from Il Pioppo vineyards, the family wine company born in 2013 after the transformation of the previous farm into a 10 hectares vineyard.
With the entrance of us sisters (Anna and Francesca) in this half-unknown world, this young winemaking entity is formed, that inherits the land, the inestimable experience of dad as well as the grandfather’s old vineyards: the 35 and 65 years old Merlot and the 15 years old Pinot Grigio, able to make, thanks to their maturity, high-quality grapes. At the same time, to complete the extension of the land, we planted about 36000 vines of Pinot Grigio and Moscato Giallo.
While waiting for the Organic Certificate, we use sustainable and low environmental impact growing systems like mechanical rather than chemical weeding and we limit the chemical treatments in favour of organic ones. Thanks to a large amount of water that surrounds our land, we don’t practice the artificial irrigation.
