Camillo Di Carlo's letter to his father
Crecchio, 13 Dicembre 1830

Two centuries have passed since then and the property has expanded to become an organic farming business, Azienda Agriverde, now run by Giannicola Di Carlo. The Company exports its products all over the world and boasts prestigious international awards for its quality wines and olive oil. The Agriverde complex is unique for a number of special features and it is an ideal place to spend a holiday and to restore well being: colours, flavours, aromas and daily routine that are part of humanity's most ancient traditions.

 

AGRIVERDE mission is to produce superior wines preserving what we inherited from Nature, in order to hand it down to future generations.
AGRIVERDE philosophy is centred on the respect of Nature and Man himself.

All transformation processes of our grapes from organic farming are carried out through the most modern and innovative technologies: from soft presses with 120 press programmes and temperature cutting down during pressing, to thermo-controlled tanks for refining, to the most advanced non-invasive filtration and wine-making systems.

In order to achieve its quality aims, AGRIVERDE applies new eco-friendly agronomical practices, such as the ploughing in of pulse plants that, through the fixing nitrogen, (root mycorrized tubercles on rooting system), manage to fix the atmosphere nitrogen in the soil, thus avoiding the use of chemical synthesis – derived fertilizers. Our techniques enable us to revitalize soils which are so poor after many applications of nitrogen fertilizers, weed killers and pesticides. Moreover, in our estates, we use pheromone traps and mating disruption to fight parasites.

Besides, AGRIVERDE carries out only organic fertilization with humic acids and other active principles ruled by EEC regulation no. 2092/91and certified by control organizations I.C.E.A. (Institute for Ethic and Environmental certification acting also on behalf of USDA for the National Organic Program certification) NOP and A.I.A.B. (Italian Association for Organic Agriculture)

All the rooms have been built with eco-friendly materials, electrical installations have been screened against magnetic fields, flooring and passages have been assembled with natural glues, everything has been done accordingly to the philosophy  of AGRIVERDE.

In perfect harmony with the landscape, forms and volumes conjure up the Sky, the Earth and the Sea, where AGRIVERDE lives in the gentleness of its hills, between Adriatic Sea and the Mount Maiella.
We only ever harvest our grapes by hand to ensure that just best bunches are picked.
We prefer hi-tech in our wine cellars to ensure we have complete control over all production phases. Costant quality over time for each single bottle.
