Meet our producer of the month, winemaker and owner Francesco Cirelli of Agricola Cirelli in Abruzzo, Italy.
Francesco’s organic farm has 23 hectares of land in a stunning location at the foothills of the Abruzzo mountains in Pescara. Here the natural cycles of the environment are greatly respected and aside from wine, the farm produces olive oil, vegetables, fruit and meats of supreme quality. Francesco purchased the land in 2003 after his graduation from university. He has dedicated himself to organic agriculture ever since and is now helped out by his wife Michela. Francesco is a farmer who isn’t afraid to challenge conventions and this is reflected in his amphora-fermented wine.
Please do take a look at our other fantastic producers from around the world too!
The wines in our selection will always be from winemakers that produce eco-friendly and sustainable wines and care for their environment as much as they do for their vines. They are small enterprises, often family run, with a story to tell about themselves, their wine and the land they are custodians of.
