After working for ten years in other wineries, I wanted to express my own sentiment and my own vision, as a producer and as a vintner.
I decided to buy the estate in 2008. I chose Brisighella because I find it to be a town
set in a valley that is still unspoilt and where
nature has remained intact, with its river, hills and olive groves, and its many woods.
For me, organic farming is a creed, and not something done just for convenience.
I was already convinced of the effectiveness of this method twenty years ago, while I was still a student of agricultural science and began to understand the destructive impact of chemicals on the environment and on the healthiness of agricultural produce.
Even then I was a defender of early-19th century agriculture, when the fertilizer and pesticide industries were still unknown, and farmers knew how to interpret the soil with skills passed down for thousands of years.
Fondo San Giuseppe produces organic wine certified by Suolo e Salute.
