Producer Information

Cantina Orsogna is an award-winning Abruzzo cooperative specialising in native grapes of the region such as Montepluciano d`Abruzzo, Cococciola and Pecorino. Orsogna are committed to the biodynamic principles by which they make their wine and have many certified Demeter biodynamic wines.

Under the brand Lunaria, they support the activities of the WWF LIFE Euroturtles project to protect turtles in the Mediterranean. The aim of the project is to improve the conservation status of the EU populations of two sea turtle priority species, the loggerhead turtle Caretta Caretta and the green turtle Chelonia Mydas.

Wine Making

Orsogna`s Vola Vole wines are dedicated to the protection of bees. They are committed to safeguarding the vineyards` ecosystem so that bees are safe and far from pesticides and herbicides. They have been certified organic for 25 years and adhere to the biodiversity friend project. The finished wines are also heavily influenced by bees - the yeasts required to start fermentation are carefully selected from the pollen the bees collect from the natural wildlife surrounding the vineyards.
