Notes from the Importer: Situated in the wine region of Oltrepo Pavese, in the foothills of the Apennine mountains (that run the entire length of the Italian peninsula), is the family owned and operated farm of Fattoria Mondo Antico. Dario Tiraboschi and his family farm their land organically integrating biodynamic techniques. This 26 hectare polyculture farm has only 4 hectares under vine. They grow Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir), Croatina, Barbera, and Chardonnay. Located up to 400m above sea level, the south-west facing sun exposed vineyards are suited to the production of high-quality grapes. The vineyards are planted in soil composed of silt, sand, and white clay that are free draining. Though the area is hot and humid, they chose to plant the grapes on these specific hills and facing south to ensure there is enough wind blowing down the hill to minimize any antiparasitic interventions that are essential to defend the vines. Of note: This is truly a polyculture farm. Along with their wine, the Tiraboschi family also produce their own cured meats, sausages, fresh cuts of meat, handmade cheeses (made over a wood fire!), pastas and homemade breads. They also offer a catering and event space and a number of rooms for rent to those who want to experience agrotourism on a working farm.
