Santa Caterina

The Santa Caterina company is located on a hill near Sarzana, in the province of La Spezia. Santa Caterina was born at the end of the eighties by the will of Andrea Kihlgren, who does not have any specific training in enology decides to buy 10 hectares of land, of which 8 are vineyards and 2 are olive trees. His work begins with the reorganization of vineyards and the regret of the vineyards, focusing on native grape varieties. Today the company is divided into four farms, the largest of which is in the hillside on clayey earthy terrain and grapes are grown in Vermentino, Albarola and Sangiovese. The other three, located on loose and pebbly soils of alluvial origin, have the name Ghiarétolo, where Merlot, Merla and Ciliegiolo, Giuncaro, cultivated in Sauvignon and Tocai, and finally Segalàra, where Vermentino is raised, are cultivated. Andrea Kihlgren applies land-use practices that are designed to preserve soil fertility by sowing seedlings, manure yields, and following the principles of biodynamics. Treatments against plant fungal diseases are based on copper and sulfur. In the cellar, Andrea tries to intervene as little as possible, its vinification is spontaneous, and does not use any oenological product. The wines of St. Catherine are sincere, sincere instant expression of the beautiful grapes that Andrea cultivates with love.
