About La Torretta

LAZIO, Italy

La Torretta is an organic wine producer. We make three kinds of white wine with our grapes, Bolle di Grotta, Torretta and Castagna, our vintage is composed of Malvasia and Trebbiano, the most common blend in our area Castelli Romani. The vineyard is located in Valle Marciano a circular valley just below Grottaferrata at about 300 meters above sea level.

La Torretta has a long wine tradition behind it, and it has been in the family for generations. Our wine is stored in a typical wine crypt, common in the area of Frascati and Grottaferrata. Our vineyard faces the southwest, at sunset you can see the sun go down over the Tyrrhenian sea. The see breeze and the volcanic soil gives a minerality and a salty hint to our wines.

We believe that making wine should respect nature and the local biodiversity. The entire process of winemaking is filled with microbiology; fermentation is such a complex expression of life, fungus and bacteria cooperating, spontaneously transforming the grape mash into wine, every year producing something unique. Every vineyard reflects a unique land, a unique season, creating a unique wine.
We strive to make honest wine, that, once poured into a glass can communicate where it was grown and when. We believe that the best way to achieve this is to make natural wine.
