Notes from the Importer: Blanko means “white” in Esperanto language; it is the most common international auxiliary language intended to be a global instrument to let all the populations communicate without any barrier. “Esperanto” literally means “the one who hopes” and this is probably the most accurate description of the idea behind its conception. With Blanko we want to share this same vision, or rather offer a blend of all our white grapes to break through each wall and barrier, establishing new and limitless relationships. Garganega, Malvasia and Moscato grapes coexist and contribute to a balance in this blend. 

Our farm is located at the foot of the Euganean Hills, in the Italian province of Padova. We adopt organic agricultural practices that do not involve the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilization products and that avoids excessive exploitation of natural resources, within a model of sustainable development – economically, biologically, but also socially as part of corporate responsibility. We understand our farm as a complex biological organism: our farm include crops like wheat, barley, rapeseed, lucerne, hemp and beans. Part of the territory is dedicated to reforestation, in an area in which woods have been forced to give way to crops of industrial farming. The wet area contributes to the development of a complex “living” organism, with unusual presence of flora and fauna that enriches our eco-system. The vineyard is currently set up from 3.4 hectares of Garganega, 1.1 of Malvasia Istriana, 1.2 of Moscato (white grapes), 1.1 of Merlot, 1.1 of Cabernet Franc and 0.5 hectares of recovered local red vines: Turchetta, Recantina, Pataresca, Corbinona (red grapes). In order to promote biodiversity in our vineyards we seed green manure between the rows; the hedges planted aside of the vineyards with hazel trees, elders, blackthorns, sorb, wild roses and mayflowers provide safety, food and nesting areas for useful fauna.
