The Area


There is no margin for error when selecting the site for a vineyard:

soil, aspect, microclimate and the surrounding landscape are inflexible “markers” for the wine and for cultivation methods, which are certainly important but can never offset the negative aspects of a location.

We were well aware of this when we sought out new vineyard plots to flank the marvellous Colla Micheri, which had so bewitched us initially.
