STORY OF Vini Bissoni
Here in Bertinoro, in the heart of Romagna, wine making dates back to Roman times. Indeed, legend has it that Galla Placidia, daughter of the Roman Emperor Theodosius, stopped in Bertinoro when journeying through the land, and was offered a cup of golden Albana. After a sip, she exclaimed: “You do not deserve such a crude goblet, oh wine, rather you should be drunk in gold!”. Hence the town’s name: “Bertinoro” (“drunk in gold”).
For nearly 30 years Raffaella Bissoni has been focusing on grape growing, in full respect for the environment and the cycles of nature. Meticulous cellar processes transform grapes into fine wines with a unique character. The Bissoni winery obtained organic certification in 2016, given by the independent and renowned CCPB certification body.
the woodlands bordering the estate give firewood for heating and the ashes of the stove are used for soil fertilization. In the vineyards, she does not use herbicides and the grass is cut just three times a year, so that an ecosystem of flora and fauna is able to thrive under the vines. Raffaella’s choice is rewarded with an extensive variety of aromas and flavours that characterise her wines. Nature rewards generously with what you give her.
