Barone Pizzini

Written by Piero Pardini


Barone Pizzini is one of the oldest wineries in Franciacorta and was the first winery to produce Franciacorta from certified organic viticulture, i.e. using only natural substances for the cultivation and nourishment of the vines or that man can obtain with simple processes, without resort to chemicals, herbicides, GMOs, fertilizers or synthetic pesticides. Barone Pizzini has chosen the path of biodiversity to keep the plant healthy and make quality wines, therefore using only organic substances to support fertility; sulfur and copper, in controlled quantities, for the containment of parasites. The organic approach is cultural, it involves choices and values and is the starting point of a path made of research and innovation.
