You will discover how the practice of fermentation unfolds and how our constant desire to learn and experiment with different procedures has lead to the creation of wines with unique characteristics. You will be invited to taste three or six of our wines and enjoy them with a homemade or locally and organically sourced sample of distinctive products.

TOUR OF OUR VINEYARD, MEDITERRANEAN SCRUB AND CELLAR
This ethnobotanical tour lasts two hours and invites you into the holistic complexity of the Casteani wine resort ecosystem.
We will tour you both through the vineyard and the woodlands to experience a wider understanding of how our wine is closely interconnected and dependent on the surrounding nature. Our walk will begin in the vineyard, where we will clarify how the richness of this land’s soil and climate have determined this land’s mining past and has recently given it a chance to renew its cultural and ecological identity through wine production. We will cut across the Mediterranean scrub area, to identify some of its characteristic trees and plants to discover their ecological, healing and nutritional qualities and how their taste may be complemented to our wine.
We will then tour the cellar, refer to some historical uses of wine and clarify the different steps of our wine production, shaped by constant desire to experiment and learn. Finally, you will have the chance of tasting our wines and savour both homemade or locally and organically sourced products, inspired by some of the plants we met on

The Winery, the beating heart of the Estate, was built in 2014 on two floors, and is located right in front of the vineyard, as this proximity allows us to start working on the grapes immediately after harvesting, to avoid traumas and premature fermentation. The cellar is located in the lower level of the building where the vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks while the aging occurs in barrels, barriques and earthenware jars. In addition, a reserved area has been designed and completely dedicated to the vinification of the line of wines without added sulfites.
