Castelli di Jesi, Le Marche
Alessandro, Beatrice & Daniela Queresma
10ha. under vine
In 2007 the current generation of the Queresma family, the previous four having enjoyed great success with mass production, decided to pare down their output and concentrate on improving the quality of the wines from their own vineyards, as a response against the glut of poor-quality Verdicchio coming from elsewhere in the region. They moved to biodynamic viticulture, natural fermentation and very low sulphur and copper usage, and obtained organic certification under their new name La Marca di San Michele.
