Santa Lucia estate was founded in the early ‘60s when my father’s land was added to my paternal grandfather’s one, thus forming a farm of about 100 ha of which 12 are vineyards. They are located at 250 m. above sea level at Mercato Saraceno in the Savio valley, right in the heart of Romagna. At that time a farm ought to be self-sufficient and produce everything, from cheese to fruit, to wine
Towards the end of the ‘90s there was a turning point: the farm specialized in winegrowing; a revolution that started from the vineyards to continue in the cellar. All vineyards are grown according to organic farming with an espalier training system and Guyot pruning. In recent years outstanding outcomes have been achieved through the evaluation of the lunar phases' influence (both in the vineyards and in the cellar) applying biodynamic philosophy.
