Tradition, respect and personality live together in our winesSince 1894, Orsolani produces still and sparkling wines coming almost exclusively from its vineyard, using only organic fertilizers and environment-friendly treatment products, according to the EEC regulations.
It produces around 150,000 bottles a year. Erbaluce covers over 90% of production.
It is a member of Comitato Grandi Cru d'Italia (Italian Committee of Grandi Cru), which gathers all the companies willing to promote their production and cultivated lands.
Erbaluce is the peculiar vine of the territory.
From Greek origin it grows the best in this area.
Erbaluce shows characteristics of good strengthand a very low basal fertility. Cluster size is average; the shape is cylindrical and elongate. Grapes are spherical with thick skin; at ripening the colour nuance is gold if properly exposed to the sunlight*.
Since 2009 the name Erbaluce di Caluso, was certified and protected worldwide, recognizing the geographical identification. We are very proud of this legal achievement as this vine is now viewed all over the world as symbiotic with the land.
Four Orsolani generations have taken care of the cellar since 1894: a long history of 120 years concentrated in four keywords: seriousness, respect, work and territory.
* Thanks to the peculiar characteristics of the vine we produce some structured white wines, some top class sparkling wines and undisputed quality raisin wines.
Ethics and PhilosophyContinuous improvement of wine quality and respect of the characteristics of territory and vine is the mission of the family.
Respect for nature is the base of working, to minimize the impact on territory and safeguard health for us and for our customers.
We use only organic fertilizers and low environmental impact treatments, according to EU rules.
Works in vineyards are mainly manual with little use of tractors; in the cellar the use of enological products is minimal and energy is almost fully generated by a photovoltaic station with an expected yearly reduction of CO2 emissions of 20 tons.
