Chiusa Grande

Devoted to organic wine philosophy.

Franco d’Eusanio, a graduate in agricultural sciences and consultant to the winegrowing industry for many years, found his winery in 1994. With his heartfelt belief in the organic farming philosophy, Franco earned himself the titles of “vinosopher” and “bio-innovator”, his love of Nature dictated by ethical beliefs and his quest to revive tradition for the recovery of equilibrium in the eco-system.

“The decision to embrace organic agriculture cannot be driven solely by the need to flood the market. The foundation must be one of committed beliefs and a lifestyle attuned to the choices made. We have to understand how farming that relies on intensive use of chemicals will lead us down a blind alley. I believe it’s possible to make a good wine without bowing down to the god of profit, and with an eye to the health of the consumer’s mind and body”, writes Franco d’Eusanio.

His aim is to combine his philosphy for life with organic winemaking, emotionally and sensorially, well resumed in a new concept create by Franco d’Eusanio himdelf: “Vinosophia”.
