Nominated by Gault Millau Schweiz as Rookie des Jahres for 2023 in the wine category.
The farm named Azienda agricola Bianchi was founded in Arogno in 1998 by Marcy and Alberto Bianchi. Since the beginning they have followed the idea of working as close to the nature as possible. Actually, all raw materials are processed according to Bio-Suisse standards to guarantee that quality requirements for labelled products as wine, honey and by-products are met.
Johanniter, Bronner and Solaris are the grape varieties cultivated to obtain white wines, whereas red wine and sparkling rosé are produced using new varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon. Since 2012 the farm also cultivates Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay for winemaking in compliance with organic production rules.
The family farm can count on the two sons, Martino (winemaker) and Gabriele (oenologist), who help in going on with their parents’ activity.
The new wine cave, built in 2017, is conceived to take advantage of the technique of gravity flow winemaking.
