Making wine and working in the vineyard are gestures that take me back in time to the days I use to spend with my grandparents. The rural life was, more than today, regulated by the good and the bad weather and by the seasons. The days were organized depending on physical strength as the work was based on manual labor.

You needed to pay attention not to waste energy unnecessarily to get to finish the job. Planting, pruning, harvesting were all manual jobs.

Everything had a reason and everything was accompanied by a hope. Everything was environment sustainable.

I need to go back to those colors, sounds and smells. I need to believe that nature is regenerated also thanks to my contribution.

What I have, comes from the Earth and the peasant culture. One day, I hope to leave to whom will come after me, more healthy, clean and alive land than the one I’ve received.
