Paterna is a very tiny “cooperative sociale”, comprising 3 farmers only who share their land and work in the farm.
As well as producing wine, they produce olive oil, strawberries, and many seasonal vegetables and fruit, as well as wine. The 8 hectare vineyards are properties of the cooperative and situated on the hills (300 metres above sea level), near Arezzo, at the foot of Pratomagno mountain and in front of the Chianti hills. The soil structure here is loose and rocky. Some vineyards are 30-40 years old and others are 6-7 years old. The winemaking is traditional and simple: soft pressing and destemming of the grapes, with low doses of sulphites and native yeasts for the ferment. The farm is run organically (they have been organic farming 269lumiest in Tuscany), produce their own herbs used to test biodynamic preparations as well. Like many growers that have been working in a natural fashion far before natural wines became fashionable. Their wines have a wonderful honesty about them – clean and approachable, but with a real sense of Tuscan sunshine.
