We are pleased to welcome back Gianfranco of La Spinosa looking to put even more smiles of enjoyment on the faces of wine consumers around the world thanks to importers discovering their wines at past editions of the Wine Pleaures International Organic Workshop.
La Spinosa is located in Barberino Val D’Elsa, a village in the heart of CHIANTI lying midway between FLORENCE and SIENA. For over twenty years, the company has produced wine and extra virgin olive oil using organic farming techniques and methods pursuant to EEC Regulation 2092/91 under the supervision of the Bologna-based Consortium for the Control of Organically Grown Products. We make our wine from traditional Chianti grapes: Sangiovese, Malvasia, Trebbiano, Canaiolo and Colorino. Our vineyards cover an area of approximately 10 hectares. The low yield per hectare guarantees a quality product.
In our wineries we use organic winemaking techniques and methods, also in this case, without adding any foreign subjects and ensuring a very low sulphur dioxide content. Our Chianti 2005 got the \”Red Tuscany Regional Trophy\” at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2008, and Gorgottesco 2005 got the \”Silver Medal\” at the same DWWA 2008.
If you are looking to incorporate organic wine into your wine portfolio without the stress and hustle and bustle of a large trade fair then you should come along to Sitges (Barcelona) and meet the winemakers and taste their wines all in a one stop, low cost event.
