Video: a tour of Barone Pizzini & interview with Silvano (English subtitles)

Click below for a video tour of the Barone Pizzini winery and an interview with general manager and Franciacorta consortium vice president Silvano Brescianini (Italian with English subtitles).

In the interview, Silvano tells the story of the winery’s conversion to organic farming.

Other growers and winemakers were highly skeptical at the time and few believed that organic farming was possible in Franciacorta, says Silvano.

The winery obtained organic certification for all of its vineyards in 2001 and today Barone Pizzini is widely considered an organic pioneer in the appellations, where many wineries are now converting or have already converted to organic farming.
