Our organic wines from Italy also come exclusively from family-run wineries that only use their own grapes and no other grapes for the preparation of their wines and who carry out all the necessary work, including bottling the wine in bottles or bag-in-box, on their own winery.
Of course, when selecting our organic wines, we not only pay attention to the condition of the vineyards and wineries, but also to the relationship between the size of a winery and the number of permanent employees and those employed temporarily during the wine harvest, as well as the working atmosphere and social relationships. In concrete terms, this means that we do not shop where low prices result from the employment of poorly paid employees and anti-social relationships.
