Leaving her philiosophy post in a university in Germany more than twenty years ago, Renate embarked on an adverture to take up a run-down vineyard in Asti, Piedmont and converted it into an organic vineyard and winery that cares for the land and the bio-diversity that inhabits it.
When you meet Renate today, you can still feel the passion that fuelled her courageous move to leave her home country and come to Piedmont in 1994. Her love for the 8-hectare of beautiful land is infectious and one can almost smell the harmony in the air. Now joined by her daughter in the winery, this German-speaking mother-and-daughter team makes wines from indigenous grapes, which, of course include Barbera d'Asti, the more mellow of the Barbera.
