Organic & Vegan wine tasting at Illica Winery close to Piacenza & Parma

The biological history of these wines began with Paola’s grandfather, legendary guardian of the art of sausage production, continued with his father, a loyal guardian of the order, kidnapped by the love for vines and came to me, conquered by passion for wines that know how to be authentic expressions of a territory free from contamination and pollution. The organic certification of the grapes started almost twenty years ago when organic was a new word but, to be honest, in the Illica family, biological is the norm, history, tradition. It’s just what they’ve always done.
