Vittorio Graziano

 Vittorio Graziano

Castelvetro di Modena - Emilia Romagna

Vittorio has 5 hectares near Modena that he has planted with some of Emilia’s traditional varieties grown from cuttings taken from old vineyards. He does not know the names of most of these! He works with very low yields and has been organic since the early 80’s. His fellow winemakers speak about him with great reverence because of his single-mindedness in reintroducing almost forgotten grapes and vinifying them in the most traditional way.
