Orsi Vigento San Vito

San Vito has been producing wine for 50+ years. In 2005, Federico Orsi and his wife Carola (along with Federico's family) bought the property in 2005 and began to convert it to biodynamics to produce wines that are more representative and reminisc

Federico Orsi was born in Italy, but grew up in Brazil. He returned to Italy as a young adult to study business. While moonlighting at a restaurant and preparing for corporate life, he noticed an "for sale" ad for a vineyard nearby. In jest, he suggested to his family that they purchase it together. To his surprise, they were enthusiastic about the idea and purchased the property San Vito. Federico, with no formal winemaking experience, began to intern with local farmers and wine growers and was immediately inspired by their love of and regard for the land. He and Carola decided they would farm their property according to biodynamic principles. Says Federico: "We've been biodynamic for over ten years now, and we're almost fanatical in how we care for the land: no chemicals are used of course, and we work with nature to ensure the best possible conditions for our vines.”

On the property, they also grow other crops, fruits and vegetables and raise pigs for Federico's locally and nationally famous mortadella. Federico also founded a local farmers market in the area, and notably makes wines using Pignoletto and vino perpetuo methods.
