Guest Producer – Heydi Bonanini
FOUNDATION YEAR: 2004- started at 16 – from the start he worked ‘clean’ (pulito) both in the vineyard and cellar- no chemicals whatsoever. Reviving tradition: in recuperating old vines, rare/lost grape varieties, rebuilding the dry stone walls, using different types of wood (instead of oa- ) etc. The last years he is also dedicated to the social aspect – he has trained a migrant, Moestafa who works with him, he teaches children in the field about agriculture and wine, a recent project is the ‘Sciacchetra migrante’, where they are recuperating close to Riomaggiore e hectare of vineyard with migrants, mostly africains, teaching them all the work involved in the vineyard and my selling the Schiacchetra made from it looking to get them a place to work afterwards.
