The Distretto del Vino di Qualità dell’Oltrepò Pavese has developed a quality project for the most popular wine of the Oltrepò Pavese region. The key elements of the project are a production protocol stricter than the Bonarda DOC one and a uniquely-shaped bottle that can be used only by the Distretto member wineries. When you buy a “Bonarda dei Produttori” you buy a wine produced by people who grown the grapes in their own vineyards, vinify those grapes in their own cellars and sell directly the wines produced from those grapes.
We are now converting to organic farming, but we have always been committed to a sustainable approach to vinegrowing, using a minimum of pesticides.
