"I am a farmer, a basketball fan and a free spirit. I work and live in Liranoa biodynamic garden in the Langa of Barolo, between the hills of Sinio and Serralunga d’Alba. I grow vines, fruit trees, herbs and cereals.

I believe that wine is magical because it allows me to be heard. And I can tell people about a new way of looking at the land and how it’s worked. A way of genuinely celebrating the beauty and harmony of nature.

Lirano is a magnetic hill, a place crossed by contrasting natural forces, yet it remains balanced. A middle ground between Alta Langa and the Barolo hills, a ridge between Sinio and Serralunga d’Alba, among woods and vineyards, amidst the Alps and the Ligurian Sea.

Some call it an awakening, and they become the men and women they were meant to be. For me, this sense of awareness made me feel part of a whole; it made me see what I though was single and independent bodies, as a harmonious system made up of complementary elements that interact with each other."

- Enrico Rivetto
