A Vita

Francesco Di Franco and his wife, Laura moved to the coastal city of Cirò to make top quality, “natural” wine with Gaglioppo, the most important native variety of Calabria. 

Francesco Di Franco grew up in Cirò, Calabria and like many his age, moved north to study. While studying oenology, he was exposed to natural winemaking and felt that wines in his native Calabria (largely made conventionally) could benefit from a lighter touch and more deliberate farming practices.

Francesco and his wife, Laura, moved back to Cirò and purchased four vineyards (8 ha) of vines planted in the alberello fashion (each vine planted on a stake independently to allow for maximum air and light flow). Today, they are certified organic and grow mostly Gaglioppo - an important varietal native to Calabria.
