As Vignaioli Inpendenti we cuddle our vines personally following every step of our wines, from the plant to the vinification, up to taking care of contact with the public and the sale of the product.
This is also why we shared the philosophy of the Soave Independent Winegrowers, to guarantee the most attentive consumers the origin and quality of our wines.
FIVI brings together winemakers who meet the following criteria:
• The winemaker cultivates his vines, bottles his own wine, personally taking care of his own product. He sells all or part of his harvest in bottles, under his own responsibility, with his name and his label.
• He doesn’t purchase grapes or wine for commercial purposes. It will buy grapes only for extreme winemaking needs, or in the case of mountain viticulture to safeguard its agricultural territory, in accordance with the laws in force.
• He respects the oenological standards of the profession, limiting the use of unnecessary and expensive additives, focusing its attention on the production of healthy grapes that do not need cellar make-up.
Why we are FIVI:
The Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers aims to represent the figure of the winegrower in front of the institutions, promoting the quality and authenticity of Italian wines.
The Winemaker is one of the central figures of contemporary wine.
Its existence is essential to ensure the consumer a wine that has a strong attachment to the territory.
He grows his own grapes and therefore the origin of his wine is certified by the efforts made in the vineyard and in the cellar by the vigneron. The origin is not a secondary factor especially if you want to drink a wine that is really wine and not just a drink.
Independent Winegrowers want to create a strong bond with consumers, so that we can start a strong dialogue with them. Theirs is a central figure and an alliance between winemakers and consumers – co-producers – is a strategic goal of the Independent Winegrowers.
We want to defend the figure of the winemaker because we are convinced that it is essential for the future of our lands and for that of Italian agriculture.
The objective of the Independent Winegrowers is that the vigneron remains in the area:
• to make wine
• to conserve terroirs
• to defend the landscape
• to the great delight of the consumer
