Vinification

The water we use is very soft and therefore poor in minerals, a characteristic which gives purity and elegance to our beers. The malt and hops are imported directly from producing countries such as Belgium, Germany and the U.K. where years of brewing tradition guarantee a very high quality. We do not however ignore our own home grown ingredients choosing, where possible, local produce for certain beers, as, for example, in the use of IGP spelt from the Garfagnana region. All our beers are produced using high fermentation (only one using low fermentation) techniques, they are neither pasteurized nor filtered and enjoy a second fermentation in the bottle.
