Udus

Fausto and Lucia, followed by Alice and Leonardo, weave this tale. Fausto, a man who pursued the memory of his father, inherited not land but dedication, respect, and a love for vineyards and their bounty. Lucia embraced her husband's dream, and together they sought the perfect plot of land where Udus would be rooted. Their children, driven by a desire to reconnect with their heritage, aim to deepen and strengthen those roots. From Udus's inception, they've committed to organic wine production, and today, their wines are entirely organic. In their vineyards, synthetic chemicals and pesticides are strictly avoided. Their method is not just a choice but a way of life. To return to the vine means embracing a slower pace and reconnecting with one's origins, to rediscover and rekindle them. This is how they perceive wine - a union of man and earth, intertwined in deep mutual respect.
