Francesco Brezza is a true farmer, an honest farmer who is deeply passionate about his work. He inherited the farm from his father Luigi, a key figure in the history of Italian viticulture. To date, the farm covers 50 hectares, 13 of which are vineyards and the remainder dedicated to the cultivation of barley and cereals, a crop that is also functional for cow breeding, a fundamental practice for the farm that thanks to the work of the animals manages to have a closed-cycle system, as they transform agricultural production into organic matter to fertilize the vine-covered soil, starting a new life cycle.

The agricultural part is fundamental for the creation of light and vital wines, where pulp and juice are expressed with a taste of great expressive finesse. Above all, Grignolino, a variety that has always been overshadowed by Nebbiolo, but which producers like Francesco are rediscovering thanks to solid wines capable of defying time.

1964, Biodynamic agriculture arrives in Italy

Tenuta Migliavacca thanks to the visionary approach of Luigi Brezza was the first winery in Italy to apply the principles of biodynamic agriculture. It then became a more widespread practice, thanks precisely to Luigi who was mentored by other winemakers who over time became themselves benchmarks for respectful and clean agriculture, one above all Stefano Bellotti.

Francesco Brezza today, as then, works to keep all of the farm's crops in balance: the cultivation of grains, livestock, and the vineyard. The winery practices follow in philosophy those of the field, with few interventions aimed at maintaining the very high quality of grapes that arrive healthy from the field and their transformation into wine.
