Podere San Biagio more than a company is an agricultural reality. A reality made up of people, paths and evolutions.
Our story began in the 80s. At that time, the wine was not part of our thoughts. We were one of the first companies in Italy to reintroduce, after years of abandonment, the cultivation of ancient cereals – first of all the spelt – embracing since the dawn of time an organic, natural and sustainable agriculture.
It sounds trite to talk about it now, but it was not so obvious 40 years ago.
Projects and collaborations led us to expand our reality more and more. We began to diversify the crops, harvesting ancient grains like Saragolla, a durum wheat, and Solina and Rosciola, soft wheats, typical from mountain areas.
Our next step was the realization of a small and artisanal processing plant completed with stone mills in order to control and be responsible of the whole supply chain.
Our first vineyard, as well as the olive grove, arrived only a few years later.
In ’95, with the renovation of an old farmhouse of 1800, we inaugurated our holiday farm and around it a series of parallel agricultural activities, such as the production of olive oil and wine intended for consumption in the structure. At that time, we did not have a real wine cellar, we were what today we call “garage wine maker”, as well as for the milling of olives we had to rely on third part mills.
In the meantime, our production increased as the product demand increased accordingly. Furthermore the need and the desire to be able to personally and directly follow all the stages of production and transformation led us to finally create a wine cellar and a small stone mill. It was the early 2000s.
Nowadays, with 5 hectares of vineyards, natural vinification techniques refined over the years and a wine cellar which well complies with our work needs, wine has become our main activity.
