Specificity Influence of the Moon cycles to reduce the use of chemicals on the land.


The Sesti story begins in 1972, when Giugi (a Venetian) and wife Sarah (from Shropshire) bought the 14th century Castello di Argiano. Sounds idyllic, correct? Apart from the fact that the whole property was completely dilapidated. They duly embarked on a massive project of reconstruction, which is still on-going. Vines were planted in 1989, taking up 9 hectares of the 102 that comprise the estate. Since Giugi is first and foremost an astronomer, hardly surprising that the cycle of the moon plays an integral part in all the viticulture and vinification.
