During the 1990s, Marco Bertoni founded Il Farneto, a naturally cultivated vineyard. His intent was to contribute to sustainable agriculture initiatives, producing grapes while respecting the environment. They now own 34 hectares of land, 8 of which are under vine, located between the hills of Scandiano and Canossa, in the province of Reggio Emilia. Even though Farneto’s fields are relatively close to the residential area of Castellarano and Sassuolo, thanks to their elevation, they have a particularly isolated position perfect for biodynamic and organic agriculture.
Il Farneto works almost entirely with indigenous grape varieties such as Spergola, Lambrusco Grasparossa, Malbo Gentile, Marzemino, and more.
