We aim to develop better food and wine farming methods, based on a holistic approach incorporating key elements of organics, biodynamics, aquaponics and permaculture. In our belief, finding balance in all living organisms, from the microbes in the soil to the insects in the garden, is the foundation for sustainable agriculture. Born in the late 30's in Italy, Erminio Iannarelli (better known as Mario) is a jovial, dynamic, iconic and passionate character. Since the opening of the cellar door in 2010, he can usually be found behind the bar serving tastings or pottering around in the vegetable garden.
