Natural wine

Natural wine is a term used to describe a widespread trend among winemakers to produce “natural” wine that is free of pesticides, chemicals, and other additives. It has a long history in Germany, where it gained prominence in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as part of the Lebensreform movement.

Castello di Stefanago

The Castello di Stefanago winery is a little gem in Oltrepò Pavese. They have been producing wines for generations and since years ago they have chosen to go organic. Not only that, here there is a great attention to the preservation of biodiversity. The vineyards are arranged in small plots, spread throughout 135 hectares of meadows, forests, orchards, and arable farmland. To add to the uniqueness of this winery, the cellars are set in a dramatic XI century castle. At Catello di Stefanago they produce natural wine, where the human intervention in the production are reduced to the minimum. While they bottle reds, whites as well sparkling wines, I am personally love their sparkling wine selection.

Pinot noir

Red wine grape variety

Pinot noir is a type of red wine grape that belongs to the Vitis vinifera genus. It’s also probable that the name refers to wines produced mainly from Pinot noir grapes. The name comes from the words “pine” and “black” in French. The name pine refers to the grape variety’s tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped fruit bunches.
