Overlooking the sea in the western part of Liguria (Riviera di Ponente) just a few kilometers from the border with France "Tenuta Selvadolce" covers about 7 hectares in one of the most scenic areas of the hills of Bordighera. Olive trees, stone walls and bougainvillea frame the vineyards which were planted in 1970. In mid-2004 we began the transformation to Bio-dynamic farming.

 

We practice responsible sustainable agriculture, respecting the man but also the environment in which he is visiting. The categorical rejection of the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers and the use of renewable energy sources are the ambitious standard we have set ourselves. Our dream is to produce quality wines in a completely natural way, that are elegant but with a strong personality that speaks of the place they are born that wonderful land of contrasts that is the Riviera di Ponente.
