Winegrowers, certified organic winegrowers, are subject to controls by various bodies. Of course it is a heavy administrative burden, but it is a guarantee for our customers, for consumers, that the work has been done according to the rules.
Our wines are all DOP and IGP. Therefore our production is controlled and the wines approved by TCA-Toscana Certificazione Alimentare, the control body chosen by the Consorzio Valdarno di Sopra DOC and the Consorzio Vini Toscani IGT. On both the Consorzio Valdarno di Sopra and the TCA website, you can check the accuracy and correctness of the label on the bottle, to protect consumers.
