About the maker
Francesco Pozzobon and girlfriend Pauline, together manage their dream farm in an area that is known for growing Barbera due to the micro climate conditions.
With 8 hectares of land and around 6 hectares dedicated purely for vines. The age of the vines vary from around ten to seventy years old, with primarily barbera, but also cortese, moscato and chardonnay. All of the grapes are hand picked and farmed organically following the Fukuoka method. Francesco follows the hard lines of natural winemaking with no filtration before bottling, wild yeasts and no additives nor sulphites at any stage. To quote Francesco, 'inspiration comes surely from the local winemaking tradition and we experiment some maceration and fermentation in bottle'.See the Tenuta Foresto collection here
