Life and transparency are the two pillars of AVIGNONESI
Conceived in 1974 and named after a member of the founding family, Avignonesi was acquired in 2009 by Virginie Saverys, who has worked tirelessly since then to convert the entire property to organic and biodynamic viticulture.
Today, Avignonesi owns 450 acres of vineyards spread over the Montepulciano and Cortona appellations. All of its wines come from 100% estate-grown grapes and since the spring of 2016, it is a certified organic winery. Avignonesi is about to conclude its certification with the French organisation Biodyvin. The biodynamic certification is now imminent. Avignonesi's wines are certified vegan.
Besides viticulture, Avignonesi currently cultivates ancient grains, has a vegetable garden and produces extra virgin olive oil, all of which are farmed in biodynamics. Just recently it has also introduced honeybee hives, pile composting, wastewater biotreatment, solar panels. This holistic and regenerative sustainable farming system focuses on the healthy life of the soil, the integration of local flora and fauna, and biodiversity.
Avignonesi continuously renews its commitment to excellence and quality, focusing its efforts on producing NOBILE made of 100% Sangiovese, with the clear goal of crafting distinctive, genuine wines, that fully express the special traits of every single vintage and the richness of its habitat.
Under Virginie’s guidance, through the support of state of the art technology and of a young International team of agronomists and winemakers, Avignonesi has developed a production philosophy based on balance, finesse, elegance and brightness of fruit.
In Avignonesi there is the possibilty of taking a guided tour of the vineyards and cellars. You can have lunch at Le Capezzine Restaurant with the top Avignonesi wines. For booking and info please see www.avignonesi.it or write to email@example.com
