An early student of the natural wine pioneer Angiolino Maule, Davide Spillare embraced biodynamics and natural winemaking with his first release in 2007. For Davide this means no interference in the vineyard or cellar, spontaneous fermentation, minimal sulphur use (under 20mg/L), no filtering or fining and most importantly a deep and abiding respect for the land his family has farmed for generations. His vineyards, he says simply, are on loan and in his safekeeping for future generations. The focus of his estate is Garganega.
