Organic viticulture

Val d’Arno di Sopra DOC
since 1716

The Borro vineyards unfold in the Valdarno hills, at the foot of the Pratomagno mountain, in an area which boasts unique soil and climate conditions. The territory itself not only reflects its long standing history but also an ancient vocation to the making of great wines. In 1716, in fact, the Gran Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo III, issued an edict which designated this area for the production of high quality wines. In 2017, the Valdarno di Sopra DOC was re-established and includes those local cellars committed to organic winemaking for the future generations.

Craftsmenship and wines: our commitment to the future

Respect for the territory is at the center of the Estate’s philosophy achieved with the use of renewable energy sources and which make us an Estate with zero emission of carbon dioxide. The vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of organic agriculture along with the inclusion of some biodynamic procedure which serve to increase production sustainability. At the basis of our organic-sustainable philosophy is the intention to create a closed productive cycle and to favor biodiversity through the creation of complex eco systems.

The value of time

Managing an organic activity entails a special way of living, of observing and respecting the land. The end goal is to help the land regenerate itself while maintaining fertility and re-establishing the proper balance between the human impact and nature. Moving from conventional winemaking to the organic method requires three years during which the vineyard regain its ecosystem. Respect for the environment also implies understanding and respecting the times that nature dictates.
