Piedmont - Langhe, Italy
A personal view of Langhe.
We took out vineyards and replanted trees, planted more than a hundred fruit plants of ancient, resistant varieties, we sew old wheat seeds, we built a greenhouse and a vegetable garden managed with organic and biodynamic practices, we created an area for compost, we built an eco-vineyard, where the vineyard lives with small woodlands and rows of aromatic herbs, and we're working on a project to recover old wells and rain waters.
Here we have a century of history, of suffering, of blood, and at the same time beauty, innovation, foresight and intuition.
Organic and biodynamic practices are the means, not the result.
I don't know the map, but I know the direction: clear, well defined, precise.
I am Enrico Rivetto, and I'm here to bring my small world to a resurrection, with manic lucidity.
