Danila Pisano works from less than a hectare of vines, a figure that seems tiny (and it is) until you look at the steepness of the hill that her terraced vineyard is set upon. With just one or two rows of old vines per terrace, it is a monumental task to take care of the site, but Danila and her boyfriend Tino manage it mostly on their own. The vines here vary in age, as they’ve been re-planted piecemeal over the years, but the oldest date to the early 1930s. Danila has worked organically since founding the estate in 1990, it was certified in 1996.
