Le vigneron

The history of the Negro house began at the dawn of the twentieth century when Lorenzo, assisted by his brothers, was loading his wine on a cart to sell it in the region. Even the barrels were home made since one of the brothers was a carpenter.

The grandson Lorenzo, third of the name, renovated the family storehouse and oriented viticulture toward sustainability by trying techniques inspired by organic farming, such as the introduction of nesting boxes for insectivorous birds (like the blue chickadee) or the use of clay for the treatment of the vine.
