Terre Vive Bergianti - Emilia-Romagna

Terrevive is an agricultural project that started back in 2008 in the small town of Gargallo di Carpi, close to Modena in the Emilia-Romagna region.
Here, Gianluca Bergianti cultivates 4 hectares of Lambrusco vineyards with his wife, Simona. In addition to the vineyards, they also grow various vegetables, herbs, fruit and animals.
Right from the start, Gianluca and Simona have closely followed the biodynamic principles with a strong focus on preserving the health of the soil in the long term. No chemicals are allowed in the vineyards and all work is done by hand.

The vines are planted on a mixture of clay and sandy soil. The majority of the grapes planted at Bergianti are Lambrusco di Sorbara and Lambrusco Salamino with plantings of Grechetto gentile, Malvasia, Moscato and Trebbiano di Modena alongside. The wines are fermented with a pied-de-cuve fermented with wild yeast. It gets a microscopic dose of sulphur, but this is the only addition in their entire wine production.

Bergianti makes both still and sparkling wines according to the 'Metodo Classico' and 'Metodo Ancestrale' methods.

In 2019, they asked 9 local artists to design the labels for their wines, just from tasting them. The result is fantastic - just like the wine. At Bergianti, they produce Lambrusco as it should be! It is undoubtedly one of the best you can find. So clean and full of expression.
