Terre di Fiume, since its origins, has always looked for a strong bond with its territory and has deeply believed in the possibility of making organic products a possible and concrete alternative.
Terre di Fiume, literally meaning ‘Riverland’ in English, has always sought to retain a close bond with the land it stands on from the very beginning, and has always had a strong belief in the possibility of making organic produce a real, feasible alternative. Choosing to cultivate vineyards using organic methods was in fact a foregone conclusion for us, and we were inspected at the end of 2000, gaining CCPB certification in 2003. We believe passionately in respecting nature, a tremendous source of energy for us and for future generations, to be protected and preserved. The first objective of organic cultivation is to eliminate chemical products like insecticides and herbicides. We only use sulphur and copper sulphate to look after our vines and use quantities well below the standards stipulated by European regulations. The grapes are harvested by hand at the time of the day that allows them to be preserved in the best condition possible. Our decision to produce a limited number of bottles means that we can carefully select only the best grapes. The winemaking process is managed by Francesco Bordini, a young, up and coming oenologist, using techniques that have been adapted and that are best-suited to the characteristics of the vineyard.
