Vandana Shiva emphasizes that industrial farming is at the core of environmental degradation. This long-outdated form of agriculture, to which we have ascribed for roughly 200 years, wreaks havoc on the environment. Shiva refers to the overuse of pesticides and herbicides, as well as genetic modification of crops, as forms of violence against the Earth. This in turn translates to violence against people, against all species, against democracy, and against science itself.

The estate extends over 26 hectares (64 acres) divided between two vineyards on opposite slopes of the Valle Esina, in the heart of the Castelli di Jesi area, with different soil and climate characteristics; the Monteschiavo area, on the left bank of the river Esino and where the winery is based, has calcareous-clay soil, whereas at San Paolo di Jesi, 400 m above sea level, sand and clay lay on a base of tuff. Therefore also the wines are different; on the left bank of the Esino they have a great mineral character and fresh fruitiness, on the right bank they are more austere, sapid and zippy. The search for quality takes place through biodynamic agriculture which enables us to enhance the different expressions of the two slopes of this valley.
