Today, more than ever, we believe it is right to value the importance of food ethics. Sustainability, Natural, Organic, Biodynamic, seem to be the new labels of good... for us the normality. We see the changing of the seasons as a supernatural gift. We exalt the farmer, the breeder and the peasant dignity. We love the identity of the territories. We respect and fairly pay the commitment of those who demonstrate their worth in the work they do. We dedicate all our time to the study and research of superlative foods and wines, going to the places of production and traveling without ever ceasing to know and learn. This makes us proud of the task we carry out. For us, what really matters is to make our customers understand that ingesting food literally means assimilating it, making it part of your body, absorbing its properties, whether they are positive or negative. This is why we always remember that choosing what to take must be of primary importance for each individual.

Awareness of this is true gastronomic culture.

The wine topic is complex, because from production to tasting, it contains infinite variables; from the vine to the vineyard, from the root to the branch, from the stalk to the grape, from the skin to the grape seed, to move on to the potential of the place, the climate, the microclimate, the soil and continue in the cellar with the vinification, a procedure as old as the world but which requires immense knowledge, physical effort and supernatural gift; then the refinement, the choice of the suitable container, the time, the ability to deal with it and the bottling, with the choice of glass, cork, label; everything to reach that fateful moment: the corkscrew that sinks the cork and releases the juice, the tasting, the real final exam, where everything is revealed and everything is concentrated, the glass, the environment, the scents, the flavors, the notes , the agreements, but also the mood of the moment, the personal experience, the memories, the company, the paired food. In wine, everything affects everything and is influenced by everything else. However, we also understood how simple the subject is, because in the end you can drink a wine and enjoy it to the full, or simply move on to the next bottle, with serenity, making you pleasantly proud of your passion, with that little awareness that for the most part of the world, actually, that will remain just a "glass of wine".
