Fausto and Cinzia Cellario, cultivate 13 hectares of vineyards and some hazelnut groves in the south-western part of the Langhe, Piedmont called Poderi Cellario. They are passionate about forgotten grape varieties and produce natural wines from spontaneous fermentation that come from hand-picked grapes. Fausto says it himself: “We don’t want an anonymous wine, but one that reflects the land it comes from and that also has a little bit of us in it. This is why we don’t use pesticides or other chemical substances and are as attentive as possible to nature.” They have taken it at heart to always keep the soil alive, so they let the grass grow between the rows instead of removing it with herbicides or other chemicals. And instead of artificial fertilisers, they use manure, a natural fertiliser, and periodically plant specific plants such as legumes and grasses to balance the soil. The motto: “we come from the earth and we must respect it”.
