To get to know a farm entirely made in Italy and inspired, in all its departments, from production to sale, to sustainable development, you need to go to Fattoria La Vialla in Castiglion Fibocchi, on the hills of Arezzo. Here is the heart of the largest area (1,400 hectares in total) with biodynamic crops in Europe.

The story of this intersection between technology, innovation and respect for history and tradition, all in the spirit of Don't waste, began in 1978 when Pino and Giuliana Lo Franco aimed at the recovery of several abandoned hectares on the hills of Arezzo. Land with excellent results for agriculture, but absolutely wasted.


The bet of the Lo Francos is at the limit of the visionary. Right from the start, the couple went beyond the canons of traditional agriculture and focused first on organic farming, which at the time hardly existed in Italy, and then on biodynamic farming. And now that Vialla is in the hands of the new generation, with Bandino, Antonio and Gianni Lo Franco, its borders are extended, towards the Oltrepò Pavese, the Maremma, the Marches and Sicily. And the headquarters remain on the hills of Arezzo.

The entire corporate philosophy of Vialla is inspired by the idea of ​​opposing any form of waste. Sales are locally sourced, there are no agents and you don't go through large-scale distribution. Everyone can buy on site, or directly on the Internet. Wine, oil, cheese, honey and vinegar. But also jams, bread, sweets and pasta. The recipes are all traditional with methods that promise the preservation of natural flavours.

Within all La Vialla agricultural properties there are certain rules that evoke sustainability in the countryside. No cars, just small electric vehicles, similar to golf cars, for getting around the grounds. The crops are all extensive, alternated and rotated periodically so as not to stress the land. Animal manure, like the scraps from processing in the laboratories, are reintroduced into the biological cycle, as a natural fertilizer to lower the carbon footprint and make the company CO2 neutral.

Finally, rainwater is recovered for irrigation with a natural purification system. La Vialla is a small world, with high quality agriculture, and a clear and strong goal: zero environmental impact.

Fattoria La Vialla – Winner of IWSC 2023 Sweet/Fortified Wine Producer Trophy

Fattoria La Vialla from Tuscany awarded 2023 Sweet/Fortified Wine Producer Trophy.

In 2023, this family-run, independent and almost self-sufficient farm celebrated its 45th anniversary by scooping up a number of awards and trophies, including 21 medals at the recent IWSC Judging. Getting this far feels like a significant achievement, shares the team at La Vialla, given “the humble beginnings when most people thought the idea of running a wine estate in a comprehensive biodynamic spirit was crazy. We are very happy that our commitment has been rewarded”

“They are an outstanding winery across the board,” said the judges. “They put so much thought into winemaking and viticulture, and their approach is truly holistic. We felt that this was the most romantic application we had received, yet there are a lot of tangible things there.”
