Fontanafredda Named “European Winery of the Year”
The leading Piedmontese winery Fontanafredda was present at Vinexpo Hong Kong along with other companies of the Italian Signature Wines Academy, with cause for celebration.
In 2018, Fontanafredda celebrates its 160th Anniversary and also recognition as “European Winery of the Year” by the influential American magazine, Wine Enthusiast. Each year, the magazine awards this title to companies that have left their mark in the wine world for their innovative vision and for their significant achievements.
But that’s not all: thanks to an investment of more than €2m, 2018 will also be the first harvest with the official certification of Organic Agriculture for Fontanafredda.
This means that in the vineyards, the company has returned to simple agricultural procedures like working the soil and on the vigour of the plant, using natural fertilisers, green manuring, and reinserting the vine into its natural system so as to eliminate the use of chemicals.
