Podere Albarese

Tuscany, Italy

Podere Albarese

We moved to Tuscany a few years ago, leaving Lombardia behind us. We started in 2003 with a ruin to be restored, some olive trees and a great desire to make wine, and we now cultivate 6.5 hectares of vineyards and about 700 olive trees. In addition, there is the farmhouse, which gives us a lot to do with all the rooms and the apartments, but also a lot of satisfaction.

The name “Alberese” comes from a particular white stone (from “albus”, which means “white” in Latin) which can be easily found underground, around the buildings.

The unique composition of our soil, creates special conditions of growth for our vineyards, and has a positive effect on the production of elegant and mineral wines.

Currently our products are not only certified organic, but are obtained with methods that preserve the quality and characteristics of the raw material: spontaneous fermentations, no additional chemicals, very low levels of sulfites.
