Do organic wineries thrive in Italy? Yes, according to Donna Sozio’s “Italian Wine: Where to Sip and Savor the Best Organic Wine in Italy,” published in Organic Authority.
Sozio underscores the prominence of this contemporary trend in the winemaking process. Organic winemaking is considered to be a celebrated spin on an age–old method. The article proceeds to highlight several wineries throughout Italy, each proud of its environmentally conscious achievements.
Barone Pizzini is an ideal example of a winery at the forefront of organic winemaking. Pievalta goes a step further as a pioneer in biodynamic winemaking in Le Marche. Both are included in the article as example wineries that pursue organic principles.
These wineries are propelling the ancient art of winemaking into the future. In implementing organic and sustainable methods into their processes, they show deep respect for the terroirs of their particular locations. Further, they are invigorating the process with modern technological advancements to preserve the earth from which the grapes come.
Respect for the land is an ancient philosophy. Yet, over time, it was been eschewed for advancements in technology. These Italian wineries, however, strive to preserve the land with technological innovation. In bridging these values, cutting edge Italian wineries are paving the way for the future of organic winemaking.
