Siemàn, meaning “six hands” in local Veneto dialect. We are three brothers, Marco, Daniele, Andrea Filippini. Coming from completely different professional backgrounds, we found ourselves sharing the same passion: viticulture.
For us the plot of land in the “Colli Berici” (Berici Hills) area, near Vicenza, has been a turning point, love at first sight.
We cultivate our vineyards stripping down to a minimum the use of outer products, thanks to a careful conduct of the ground all year round. We do not use pesticides or chemical weeding and we use fungus based products inasmuch as they are inducers of resistance, in order to reduce verdigris. We cultivate mostly autochthonous grapes, in order to safeguard and preserve our territory .
Our wines are born from these grapes. In the wine cellar, the fermentation takes place spontaneously by means of indigenous yeasts, no manipulation occurs during the various phases of the wine-making, no outer products of any kind are added, if not a small quantity of potassium metabisulphite in the wort, when necessary. We follow this process working as much as possible on cleanliness, waiting, listening and respecting the natural rhythm of the process itself. The wines rest in barrels, concrete and steel in order to enhance the characteristics of the grapes from which they originate. In this way the wine in the wine glass expresses all its territorial character.
Our beers are born from these grapes too. Depending on the year and on the organoleptic equilibrium we aim for, part of our grapes is used to produce our beers. In each beer you will be able to find our territory, our work in the vineyard and the connection to our wines. Fermentation and aging occur, slowly, in wood barrels different in capacity and essence, without shortcut, forcing or technological process control.
The farm is located in Villaga, area of Barbarano Vicentino - Vicenza, in the Colli Berici hills: nine hectares of hilly terrain, part of which is woodland.
