- Size Guide
Environment in harmony, better wine, a life choice! Discover La Luna del Rospo , an organic winery in Agliano Terme, in the Italian region of Piedmont, led by agronomists Renata Schutz and Michael Schaffer, with the support of the winemakers Giuliano Noe and Beppe Rattazzo. The company was founded in 1994, being careful to a complete biodiversity . In order to obtain high quality wine, you need a synchronicity of many factors, among which care for the environment is a fundamental aspect. The winery is located in the Asti province, the area of the Barbera d’Asti production. Here, from these calcareous clayey soils with an under soil of quartz, traditionally the Barbera's are produced, elegantly and convincingly combining body, structure and fruity flavors. Today, La Luna del Rospo spans almost 8 hectares of vineyards, all cultivated following strict rules of organic and biodynamic farming. You will visit the vineyards , with vines older than forty years, surrounded by trees, bushes, plants and aromatic woods. This is not only a beautiful sight to see, but also it functions as shelter, protection and food for the flora and fauna that help to protect the vine, producing high quality and liveliness. The key point of this extraordinary scenario is an area of two hectares totally uncultivated, dedicated to reserves of biodiversity in the middle of the vineyards, further enriching the harmony of this unique atmosphere. All the grapes are grown according to the strictest organic farming methods , they are harvested, carefully selected by hand and placed in small baskets. Following is a light pressing with removal of the stems. Vinification takes place naturally without added yeasts to guarantee as much as possible an authentic and natural product. In the process, the phases of the moon are followed, and natural physical techniques are favored over chemical ones. All of this is done respecting a product that is as alive, healthy and typical as possible.
