Do.t.e is an experimental entity that seeks alternative answers in the management of contemporary viticulture. It’s taking one step back in order to go two steps forward. A return to agricultural origins that clearly defines the present and realistically imagines the future. It’s the desire to stand out with wines that spontaneously expresses their reason for being —beyond statutes and production regulations— based on the foundational principles of the entire project: health, ethics, everyday.

Going back to wine as something able to reflect places, arouse feelings, heat up relationships.

The grapes are grown without using any systemic pesticides (fungicides, herbicides, insecticides). Musts and wines are treated in total absence of chemical and enological products (including sulphites). Each bottle is a deliberate result of a self-determined path; any differences need to be considered as parallel deviations proceeding in the same direction of the chosen path.

Cherry, Apple, Tropical, Minerals

Sushi, Lemon & Herb chicken, BBQ Pork, Lean Fish
