Organic Italian white wine is made by Paterna is a very tiny “cooperative sociale”, comprising 3 farmers only who share their land and work in the farm. They produce olive oil, strawberries, and many seasonal vegetables and fruit, as well as wine. Il Terraio is a great expression of Tuscan land and has both beautiful story and flavours. The latter are aromatic yet restrained, refreshing citrus fruit together with stone fruit, apples and rich floral bouquet.
The main story of this wine is that it is made by people who undergo rehabilitation from mental illness - they come to work in the farm, enjoy calm, relaxing environment, work the vineyards in solitude and reflect. It helps them to recover from the past life traumas and put their heart and soul into caring about vines, handpicking the grapes and then helping the winemakers. Good quality organic white wine, a very touching story and fantastic versatility with your food!
