Dornach - Patrick Uccelli
The true embodiment of living in harmony with nature can be found at Dornach. Patrick Uccelli, his wife Karoline, and their three young children farm the terraced vineyards above the village of Salorno and the Adige valley, originally planted by his family in 1836.
The ideals of biodynamics are beautifully rendered here where grapes, other fruits, vegetables, grains, bees and livestock all exist harmoniously creating a closed ecosystem with amazing biodiversity. Dornach’s Pinot Blanc and Pinot Nero burst with varietal and regional character, pure expressions of site and personality.
