Vineyards: Aldibella is a cooperative project, working with grapes from 10 growers in the Camporeale region. They are all organic at the very least, though the Valdibella ethos pushes all their members towards a biodiverse and regenerative agriculture model, using no tillage in the vines where possible. This also means growing vines alongside olives, almonds, figs, pomegranates, etc, and close to natural areas, woodland, ponds, and fallow hedges thereby creating a more stable and balanced agro-ecosystem. The grapes for Kerasos come from all of the growers so this wine always showcases an overview of the whole project and a balanced expression of the whole region.
