More about this Producer
“I know I was kissed by luck when I bought Podere Le Ripi: the soil, the geology, the microclimate, the unpolluted environment are the best I could find for my place. These are the best conditions to make very important wines.
Almost every vineyard I planted has a potent character: this means that I can produce fantastic grapes. Why should I transform a fantastic raw material in a simple wine? Don’t you agree I would disrespect this precious gift of nature?
This is why I decided to make my wines with the highest attention, with the needed investments, with the best techniques and technology, in the best possible way.
And now that I begun to let people taste my wines you can not imagine how many say to me: “I can’t believe this wine is done by so young vines.” which confirms that my soil is really very peculiar and I was right to treat my grapes in a so important way.” – Francesco Illy
“A Belief cannot be a Vision? Why? We believe that wines made in our way are good for the whole stakeholders chain: from clients to workers, from the environment to our culture, from our emotions to our pragmatism, from suppliers to our sales peolple.
We believe that this model will grow in many other different realities of our economy, that other people will make other products in this way and that it will become one of the important models that will make our world more and more sustainable.” – Francesco Illy
