From Vine Farmer:
La Ginestra is a 100% worker owned and managed Tuscan farm with over 130 hectares of land, producing honey, meat, olive oil and pasta from local, heritage grains. The shared goal of the team is to preserve and renew the traditions of the Italian countryside.
Winemaker and part owner Dario Nocci has a technical winemaking education and spent a number of years working in Australia. Upon returning home, he intended to make wine entirely by feel, using his formal education in a passive manner. In short, he desired to make wine of feel without being ignorant of the complex processes taking place.
In the cellar, stainless steel, inox or amphora are employed for fermentation and aging. La Ginestra works only with naturally occurring sulfites. These wines fit the current “popular” definition of natural wine yet cannot be so easily defined - most "natural" wines (using the strictest popular definition) are simple and easy, if also "correct". La Ginestra's wines can be light and joyous or a bit more serious, yet all have presence married to soaring aromatics.
We are happy to represent these unique and engaging wines that push boundaries and challenge norms.
