This Wine's Story:
We’re still trying to figure out how Enea, who founded and still runs the Coop and community of La Collina finds time to do it all. When he’s not taking care of the livestock, or the fruit and vegetables, grains or honey he is taking in young adults from his community with drug addictions. When he is not doing these activities he is traveling to South America, and soon, other regions to help other cooperatives set up a functioning business as he has with La Collina. OR, we can find him working closely with Biodynamic pioneer and Demeter founder Alex Podelinsky on a project to create and design handmade machines that will help BD farming become more accessible and practical to a wider group of agriculturists of all types. Finally, somehow, there is still time for him to make wine with the help of a friend and producer at a nearby cellar.
The Lunaris Secco is a stroke of brilliance on Enea’s part… it is more aromatic than a prosecco, cheaper than a Prosecco and grown bio, refreshing beyond belief both in the glass and on the price tag. Hence the fact that this wine very quickly became one of our best sellers, and remains so every month no matter the season!
