Wild flowers thrive in Amistà’s organically farmed vineyards.

Spring is in full swing at Amistà and the vineyards are a sight to behold!

The rows between the vines are teeming with wild life and wild flowers (as you can see in the image above).

The rich biodiversity is the result of decades of organic farming practices. That means that no herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides have been used to treat the plants. The Amistà farm has always been farmed organically and the 2024 vintage will be the winery’s first “organic certified” harvest.

Biodiversity is extremely important in creating wines with the brilliant aromas and flavors that wine lovers look for in Amistà Nizza DOCG and Amistà Nizza DOCG Riserva.

The presence of wild flowers (just look at that sea of yellow above!) attracts a broader range of insects which in turn attract a diverse range of animals.

Those animals bring with them (often in the form of their, well, ahem, poop) microorganisms — bacteria and yeast — that give life to the soil. As a result, the grapes have more robust and a wider array off aromas and flavors.

The proof is in the pudding wine!
