Located in Marche, in central Italy. A group of friends who bet on organic in 1979 when the region produced only very low quality, but in quantity ...
If cooperatives sometimes have a negative connotation in France, with this blend of vineyard owners who together produce a sometimes approximate wine, here at Aurora we have something different, we find the very essence of the cooperative. People who come together to work together as partners.
It started with the construction of the building, by the partners themselves, and it continues every day with each one who has a defined role but helps each other in the daily work of the plots. And at noon, everyone gathers around a large table, with one of the associates who is on duty in turn, for a week, to prepare the meal for the good ten other people present.
After almost 40 years, the time for new generations begins. At the time, the first challenge was total, full of unknowns but full of hope. He is about to continue on a trail that has already been mapped out.
But young people are living beings; young men who face the earth, the climate and the natural elements. Paradoxically, the world of wine needs to evolve in order to remain true to itself, and even the most “conventional” producers are converting.
Today Aurora has thirty-seven hectares of land: ten of vines, two of olive trees, one of fruit, especially apricot, five of arable land, and the rest are woods and the characteristic "calanchi". Si Aurora mainly produces wine; it is not that he knows how to do it - well -; it is that Aurora knows how to give relevance to the various elements that compose it: the earth, the vine, the moon and the sun, the wind and the rain, the work of man.
Aurora is the founder of TERROIR MARCHE, a consortium of vineyards that wants to promote and improve organic and biodynamic cultivation and the transformation of the vine. The Consortium also proposes the preservation of the territory as well as a sustainable and united economy. This project gave birth to a group of farmers - wine growers who have been working for years in the production of certified organic wines. Farmers who have an absolute link with their own territory of origin; a group of men and women who share an ethical breeding activity, which places man, land and work at the center: the Terroir.
