In recent years the vineyard has converted most of its 15 hectares to olive oil production and developed an entirely new land dedicated to growing Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. With its strong focus on eco-friendly production methods, the vineyard is currently on its way towards gaining its organic certification.
From the meticulous pruning of the vines in the field to the careful picking and sorting of the grapes by hand, every stage of production at Casa al Vento is a ritual homage to the art of winemaking. Once the grapes are gently crushed, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks and specially selected oak barrels that can store up to 400 hectoliters at an optimal temperature monitored by a central computer. It is within the heart of this authentic jewel of technology and rural architecture, in complete harmony with the surrounding landscape, that the Casa al Vento’s signature wines will age over the next 18 months to reach their impeccable trademark flavour.
Borgo Casa Al Vento offers 9 types of accommodations:
Tennis court, ping pong table and archery
The wines at Casa al Vento contain the passion, love and tradition of years of wine-making. The decision to produce organically was achieved following the incredible respect the owners have for the land. These high-quality wines created by expert hands are full-bodied with fruity flavours.
