Trocchio Wines

At Trocchio Wines our philosophy is to make wines that are a true expression of where they come from: the soils, the growing conditions of a given season and the cultural impacts such as canopy management etc.  This is the story that the fruit has to tell when it leaves the vineyard. It is then the winemaker’s job to handle the fruit as gently as possible as it is turned into wine. Doing this requires minimal intervention in the wine making process to avoid the true storey being lost in translation.

Gentle treatment of the wine includes techniques such as traditional open top fermentation and hand pressing the grapes. Gravity fed transfer of the wine is used rather than pumps. clarification of the wine is achieved by letting the wine settle naturally over time instead of using harsh filtration.

Only single vineyard wines are made and our growers subscribe to the importance of provenance and a sense of place.
Our ultimate goal is to produce wines from our own biodynamically grown fruit with a carbon neutral footprint and minimal use of additives. We are progressing slowly but surely towards this goal with every vintage. Follow our posts to track our progress.
