1. How was your brand born? Tell us about your background and how you started your job.
Our Pian della Chiesa Agricultural Company was born in 2007 and has progressively developed over the years. After a hectic life in London until 2005, we decided to opt for a more natural lifestyle. We bought, in the middle of the Montemarcello Natural Park, a property with rural houses scattered all around. These lands were previously cultivated with vineyards and orchards but were abandoned after the Second World War. It was hard work! but two splendid vineyards have grown, both surrounded by over 200 olive trees and majestic oaks.
2. Three adjectives to define your Brand.
Organic, refined and intense
3. Which is your creation to which you are particularly attached or which represents you the most?
The Margot was immediately a great satisfaction. The vinification includes an initial period of contact with the skins at low temperatures to facilitate the extraction of the aromatic components of the grapes, then at higher temperatures, around 28 degrees, to extract tannins and color. The wine remains on the skins for about 14 days until the end of the alcoholic fermentation. Then follows the malolactic fermentation. These two fermentations take place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (using only natural yeasts).
4. How do you imagine your work / brand in 5 years?
We will certainly continue to expand and improve. Our vineyards today extend over 8000 square meters at 350 meters above sea level and just 900 meters from the small port of Tellaro. In 2015 we completed the construction of a small, beautiful and efficient underground cellar where we fully carry out the entire winemaking and bottling process.
