Ep. 146 Monty Waldin interviews Roberto Di Filippo (Di Filippo Winery)
In this episode Monty Waldin interviews Roberto Di Filippo, owner of the Di Filippo Winery in Umbria. The Di Filippo winery is an organic and biodynamic estate producing Montefalco Rosso, Sagrantino, Grechetto, and other traditional wines from the region. Roberto explains his strategies for biodynamic vine growing—the use of draft horses and geese in the vineyard—and his ‘think global, act local’ philosophy. Roberto also tells Monty about the economics of biodynamic viticulture and his trip to the Hamish communities in the United States to learn how to build more efficient horse-working tools. Tune in to discover also how his Grechetto with no added sulphites is made!
