What does it mean to farm organically?


It means respecting the earth, not attacking it with chemical substances that pollute it and that make it sterile, helping it to stay alive and productive with organic fertilisers, naturally, from an organic source. It means caring for the crops with natural substances, without chemical fungicides or pesticides that inevitably leave  angerous residues in the fruit. nIt means working without running the risk of ingesting or absorbing possible carcinogens. In short, producing cleanly, following the rhythms of nature, without putting the future of our precious planet at risk. Does that seem a small thing?

Ansonica Costa dell'Argentario D.O.C.

A grape of eastern origin, typical of the Mediterranean coasts, Ansonica has been cultivated for centuries also in Sicily (where it is called Inzolia) and was taken to the islands of Elba and Giglio and to the coasts of Argentario in the 16th century, at the time of the State of the Garrisons.
The area of DOC production (established in 1995) includes parts of the boroughs of Manciano and Orbetello, and all the borough of Capalbio, the island of Giglio and Mount Argentario.

Our Ansonica maintains the traditional characteristics of this particular grape, incorporating the warmth and scents of the Mediterranean.

Olio extra vergine di Oliva

Our Extra-virgin olive oil is produced with olives from typical Tuscan cultivars: frantoiano, leccino, moraiolo a pendolino, the pollinator par excellence.
We don’t use chemical treatments on the olive trees. We only use organic fertilizers and we pick the olives by hand immediately after fruiting. Pressing is carried out within a very short time of picking at a certified organic olive press.
The acidity of oil is very close to zero and peroxides are almost inexistent.

It is an oil with an intense, fruity fragrance. A small amount suffices to give flavour and glory to both raw and cooked food.
We supply it in 0.5 and 0.75 litre bottles or 3 and 5 litre cans.
