HISTORY: Le Colline winery is the epitome of small-scale farms and a deep connection to the territory, its cultural heritage, and traditions. Operating according to the principles of organic farming, this little farm is the common project of a group of young and creative farmers from the Marche region, Central Italy. Their orchard includes tomatoes, seasonal vegetables, and herbs, which they deliver door to door.
We got in touch with them because they incarnate the same values that we are looking for: high quality and ethical means of production. Their vineyards are naturally cultivated without the use of pesticides or chemical treatments. Nature runs its course, and their grapes are the true expression of this beautiful territory, spread out on gentle hills overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
VINEYARD: The vineyard is located along the hills of Tolentino city, home to the traditional Maceratino, ancient and noble local vineyard. Le Colline’s vineyard, young and dynamic, is run according to modern technologies which respect nature and tradition. Different kinds of vines are cultivated there: Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon.
