Winemaking Azienda Agricola La Mesma is an organic certified winery following strict organic practices without the use of weed-killers or chemical fertilizers. The Rosina sisters believe that great wine comes from great fruit, and that great fruit can be obtained with gentle, hands-on symbiotic farming practiced throughout the entire growth cycle – from planting and growing the initial green crop to controlled grass treatments and soft pruning. As the Gavi region is rich in biodiversity, La Mesma purposefully fosters and promotes the natural elements in its vineyards carefully integrating birds, insects and wild animals that roam freely in the vineyard and the woods surrounding their land.
A leader in the Slow Wine movement, La Mesma’s Gavi di Gavi INDI is a natural wine which was featured in Jane Anson’s Wine Revolution: The World’s Best Organic, Biodynamic and Natural Wines, 2017, and was ranked among the 30 best value organic wines in the world in Decanter Magazine.
Committed to environmental sustainability, the Rosina sisters employ clean power provided by solar panels to power the winery and wine-making process. Socially conscious as well, La Mesma takes pride in hiring and educating young refugees from Sub-Saharan countries
