  • About the Winery

    Founded at the beginning of the twentieth century, Azienda Agricola Mario Giribaldi has existed for three generations. It is truly a family business, one big family of ten people who every day, proud of their land, share the passion for their own work in the vineyards.

    Mario speaking: "The quality of the grape that arrives at our winery during harvest is fundamental: from spring to autumn, it is the climate that sets the rules. All we can do is follow the weather and decide what to do in the vineyard to give our vines the maximum attention and care and make sure the buds grow as well as possible. The work in the cellar is very traditional, the use of modern technology helps us maintain the high quality of the grapes." So the family works organically because it fits into their philosophy and not to follow a market trend.

    They started growing grapes organically in 2001 and obtained their first certification in 2004. This makes them one of the first organic wine producers. At the time, the word "organic" was used in the wrong context. When making organic wine, they also talk about the use of sulfites. In certified organic wines, a reduced sulfite content is guaranteed. It is now clear that this chemical has been abused in the past and that one can easily have a sulfite level below 100 mg/l without any risk to the maturation and longevity of the wine.
