Among the first in the south to use organic farming, since 2002 Pierluigi and his wife have also cultivated two hectares of vineyards using a single vine, the Fiano. The vineyards are located on three different parcels and offer different characteristics in the composition of the soil and the work in the vineyard and in the cellar are aimed at enhancing the territory and the grape variety.
