La Pietra del Focolare
Written by Piero Pardini

La Pietra del Focolare – Liguria – ITALY

La Pietra del Focolare, founded in 1995, from the great passion for nature and viticulture of Stefano Salvetti and Laura Angelini, is located in the south-eastern side of the Liguria region. A love inherited from grandparents, humble vineyard craftsmen, who were also able to pass on the first rudiments of pruning and winemaking

The company finds its terroir between Castelnuovo Magra and Luni, an ancient city and Roman port of strategic importance since 177 BC, from which the small and prestigious DOC of the Colli di Luni was born.

The yellow of the sun, the red of the earth and the blue of the sea are the setting of vineyards, often hidden by maritime pine forests, in the midst of clearings surrounded by heather gorse and fragrant Mediterranean plants.
