Ornina is a young, natural and dynamic winery applying biodynamic farming methods. At the moment we produce 8 labels, from the most traditional ones, Sangiovese-based, to the more international ones with Pinot Grigio and Pinot Nero, Sauvignon Blanc, all certified organic. For us, this is home, not only a winery; the place where we live every day the most beautiful and uplifting moments, but also the most problematic and excited ones, those that make you stay with bated breath, because you know, living in the countryside is as beautiful as the countryside itself, but only few things can be taken for granted. We live the rhythms of nature and we lose ourselves to it every day so that in September it gives us the most beautiful fruit of the vine, which is so vital to us. Our project was born almost by bet in 2008, taking over the family's historic farm where Orazio, Marco’s father, in 1973 replanted two hectares of vineyards cultivated with Tuscan vines, mostly Sangiovese. From that first harvest, we realized that perhaps wine in Casentino could be a winning bet. This also gave rise to the need to take the utmost care of this generous land, applying biodynamics to our vineyards and the natural wine making method to our work in cellar. We had a clear plan: taking the best fruit of a healthy soil to the cellar and processing it preserving its original characteristics, so that in every glass of our wine you could taste a bit of Casentino. For this reason we do not use any selected yeasts, tannins, enzymes, stabilizers and other substances in the cellar, of which unfortunately consumers often ignore the existence and effects.
