Since chemical–free viticulture was introduced at Querciabella
with the conversion to organics in 1988 followed by
a transition to biodynamics in 2000, the goal has been to
maintain a balanced ecosystem where healthy, living soil
provides the highest quality of nourishment to vines, while
achieving perfect harmony with the rest of nature.
   The winery practices a proprietary farming regime known
as cruelty–free biodynamics, which bars the use of
animal–derived products from all phases of grape growing
and winemaking. This 100% vegan approach to biodynamic
viticulture is not only key to producing wines of exquisite
quality and marked territoriality, but is also a direct challenge
against the industrialized farming establishment – an economic
behemoth based on the systematic exploitation of animals,
which scientific research shows to have devastating effects
on our planet.
   Querciabella opposes the use of GMOs, especially
in agriculture, given their grievous environmental impact.
The winery also rejects artificial manipulation in winemaking,
including the practice of reverse osmosis, which compromises
the natural chemical composition of wine.
   With 74 hectares (183 acres) of prime Chianti Classico
vineyards – located in the communes of Greve, Panzano,
Radda and Gaiole – in addition to 32 hectares (79 acres) in
Maremma on Tuscany’s unspoiled Etruscan coast, Querciabella’s
holdings represent one of the largest extensions of biodynamically
farmed (certified organic) vineyards in Italy, contributing
extraordinary biodiversity to local and surrounding ecosystems
and serving as a sanctuary for thriving numbers of honeybee
colonies
. To learn more about Querciabella’s campaign to raise
