From the wine to the glass
The winery Quaquarini respects the land, the environment, the work.
They develop research programmes to improve production, enhancing the production techniques and the wine tradition that set them apart.
A veritable production chain of wine: from the delicate manual phase of the vine cultivation and vintage, the great care and the scrupulous control of the production to the bottling and selling of the wine. A family-run reality, producing high level and high genuineness traditional local wines, maintaining a very good price/quality ratio.
The oenologist is at home
Umberto Quaquarini is the oenologist of the company.
In the vineyards and in the cellar, he follows every phase of the production of each wine, with great care and attention. Taking inspiration from the work of his father Francesco, he has given prominence to the cultivation of autochthonous varieties of vines, combining tradition and innovation.
The firm, certified organic, adopts the grassing technique, (that is the presence of a meadow in the vineyard) in the growing of the vines. This technique can produce a better ripening of the grapes, so improving quality and fighting the erosive effects of the soil.
