Isola Augusta

Overview

The company was purchased in 1959 by Renzo Bassani, who fell in love with this land after finding and tasting two bottles of wine by the winegrower at the time. He immediately realised that the area was naturally suited to viticulture and he began to renovate the houses of the peasants who lived there, and renewed the old vines to start producing great wines.

The Bassani family was one of the first in the region to replace chemical additives in wines with the traditional physical processes, by using the “cold technique”. This is why the company slogan at the time was to produce a “Vino Vivo” (Living Wine), unpasteurised, thereby leaving its organoleptic properties intact.

In 1989, the winery was modernized and the building that now houses the winery, equipped with the latest technology to ensure the authenticity and the quality of the final product was built. All of the bottled wine is produced on the farm and followed through the various stages of the process: from plant to bottle. Today Isola Augusta is both a modern and ancient company, a village where time seems to stand still and where you can taste excellent wines, made with love and passion by a team of qualified people led by expert winemaker Giuseppe De Vincenzo.
