Story

With vineyards in the family since the turn of the last century, Fattori has been in the hands of Antonio Fattori since 1970.  Born in 1888, it was Antonio, his grandfather, who first planted vines and sold wines.  After studying winemaking, Antonio chose to modernize the family winery, to make wines with elegant aromas and body.

Practicing "environmental sustainability" Fattori does not use insecticides or fungicides.  Instead, they aim to eliminate insects by "confusing" the sexual process and with the use of copper and essential oils of vegetable origin.  They are currently in the process of replacing chemical fertilization with organic fertilizers to enrich and harmonize the soils.
