About Forti del Vento

Piedmont, Italy

We are two friends who believe in making good terroir wines following biodynamic & organic cultivation, without the use of sulphites, selection of yeast or filtration. Terroir is the real interesting story that every glass should taste, the feeling of the land where we live with our families without chemical interference and our goal is to have nothing but truly good wines.
