Di Filippo / Umbrien

Relatively small, the operation of Di Filippo family with its 30 acres. A large portion of the wine was sold in the past open to regional Umbrian wholesaler at lowest price, best delivered in 5 liter containers directly from the farm to customers. Italo and Giuseppa di Filippo came 40 years ago from the city to live in the country and establish a winery. Not as classic dropouts in order to have a solid income. Today the sisters Emma and Roberto farm with their families and the Azienda Cantina di Filippo. With the completion of the study returned to the oenologist Roberto, the son of Italo di Filippo, on the parental Good back and began the conversion of vineyards in accordance with the guidelines of the AMAB. Primarily Roberto has taken this step because it is convinced as to produce the better wine. Besides, he no longer wanted to expose the stresses of 'synthetic aids' his lands and the people working there. Since the late 90s, there was a lot invested in the modernization and expansion of capacity, bought in grapes is processed by small organic farmers also partially. So Roberto has both the opportunity to meet the increased demand, as well as to organize fluctuating harvests optimal. With a friend, he bought some working in DOC Sagrantino de Montefalco. But the development goes a step further. Since a few years the work of Filippo di biodynamic criteria - but only where it really makes sense. Roberto and his sister Emma are open-minded about the idea, but do not dogmas. Very impressive, but the idea is to work exclusively with horses and a few acres to ban tractors from the Wingert. Some loud squawking geese has been around for three years, they keep the vines free of snails and some other pest droppings are in the truest sense of the word as a natural fertilizer.
