About us

FAMILY AND THE ESTATE

Tosca farm born in 2000, when Locatelli family decided to manage their nine hectares following the organic viticulture values, with their sons help. The property fields are placed in the very first location of Val San Martino in Pontida, where the Valcalepio region begins.

The vineyards are recently realised and cultivated with varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot gris and Franconia. The farm cultivates according to the Organic Viticulture values, which is possible because of the collaborative presence of the agronomist Angelo Divittini from the Studio Agronomico SATA, and thanks to the particularly favourable soil structure and fertility.

Since 2004 the farm carries out the whole winemaking process, obtaining very characteristic and typical wines. Our job is driven by the optimisation of the quality of our products respecting the environment, instrinsic values/aspects that find a brilliant reflection in the fields organic cultivation.

WHAT DOES “ORGANIC VITICULTURE” MEAN?

Naturalness and sustainability are the values we would like to pass down using the words “Organic Viticulture”.

Our vineyards are managed with grass between the rows, and fertilisation is conducted by natural means and plant protection is arranged by organic products completely avoiding chemicals compounds.

In the cellar we limit the sulphur usage and corrective actions. Basically the modern technologies and the enologist Paolo Zadra advices help us to obtain always the best from our grapes.

How do we apply the Organic Viticulture principles?
