The story of a dream,
from the beginnings to Risit d'Aur.
"Colli di Poianis" a dream passed down from father to sons. Paolino pursued his dream for seventy-seven years and Gabriele was able to accomplish it in 1991. From that day on, we have been tending the family vineyards with great passion and awareness. Everithing, from the marvellously appointed south east-facing
vineyards to the smallest blade of grass is about our heritage. In 1981 we were awarded the prestigious Nonino Risit d'Aur Prize, for having planted one of the first new vineyards to Schioppettino with the commitment to enhance the native varieties of grapes, a great achievement that celebrated Paolino's mature and far-sighted wisdome.
Our wine card
We are fully committed not only to re-introducing native varieties that were abandoned in the past but also to preserving the land and its heritage in the original state. Indeed, the rolling hill slopes, lush green paths and thriving vineyards, as a whole, have created an ecologically balanced ecosystem where biodiversity can thrive. The heart and soul of these vineyards translate into our wines. Cultural heritage and a true sense of place, in a bottle!
The beautifully renovated old farm house enjoys a wonderful view over the gently sloping vineyards and the countryside below. Here, peace and quiet reign supreme. The slow, majestic flight of buzzards and the mewing calls that pierce the sky do nothing but enhance the feeling of unspoilt nature. Indeed, these rapacious birds have since ancient times been a distinctive and welcome presence. Down below, where the slopes turn into plain, the slow-moving river adds to the microclimate making it ideal for winegrowing and pleasant for those who love the outdoors. The winery is located on the estate where countless paths and tracks criss-crossing the vineyards and woods invite you to take a jog or walk all year round. Here you can get lost in nature and surprisingly find yourself.

Schioppettino: our red wine
and the signature wine of the territory
It is the native red wine grape through which this territory expresses its own distinctive character. We were the first to believe it and since then it has rightly become our flagship label.
