My memories are here. I’ve known in my mind ever since I was a small girl that the only place I felt well was in nature, maybe because I was born and raised among vineyards.
Thinking back to infancy, I still remember well the scents that came in through my bedroom window: the intense notes of fermentation. I have to say that what fascinates me and attracts me to wine is above all my sense of smell and the sensations it gives me.
My link with the vineyards then grew, tightened and strengthened.
When fifteen I made my first grafts, collected herbs and even drove a tractor: I felt that deep need to live within nature.
Today too my refuge may be the vineyard or the forest, the kitchen garden or the flowerbeds, places where I feel at home, I feel myself.
Nature is a source of energy and a place of quiet.
The link with the territory works two ways. I feel deeply to be trentina and a highlander, maybe this being why I feel a sense of solitude that perhaps now with the help of the Dolomitici group I’ll overcome.
I must say that here, we all knew each other, but there never was a humanly open approach, until it arrived together with a different more receptive approach to wine growing.
Today, in my life there’s a pull to go ahead, to progress with coherence and balance towards shared choices thanks to personal strengths: the men and women I meet and who have, with me, the wish to work to a common plan of vision and intent.
