Biodynamic Production

The Fattoria COLLE VERDE welcomes you to our biodynamic vineyard producing some of the most distinctive Wines and Olive Oil of Tuscany.

Known and enjoyed around the world, the noble and distinctive taste of our wines, olive oil and other products reflects the fact that our family has farmed this land with care for generations.

Our winemaking philosophy is based on the belief that great wines always begin in a vineyard that is farmed in harmony with nature. For almost twenty years we have been using a system of integrated pest management and our wines and olive oil are fully certified as organic by ICEA since 1999.

In 2006, we began using biodynamic methods which are a natural compliment to traditional Italian farming practices.

… since 2006

Fattoria COLLE VERDEs ‘natural farming’ practices in the vineyard include:

  • using biodynamic preparation 500 to improve the soil’s natural fertility
  • using only copper- and sulphur-based products for pest control
  • spraying biodynamic and/or organic teas on the canopy
  • creating a bio-diverse habitat by letting portions of the property remain uncultivated to provide a wild habitat for beneficial insects and natural predators
