Biodynamic wine is often considered superior to conventional wines, with better flavour, superior aroma, and more pleasant texture. Growers find that the biodynamic method yields a better growth balance, and ideal sugar content for the wine.

The mountainous Abruzzo region of central Italy is situated halfway up the 'boot' of Italy. Cantina Orsogna is an award-winning Abruzzo winery specialising in native grapes of the region such as Perricone, Cococciola and Pecorino. Orsogna are committed to the biodynamic priniciples by which they make their wine and have many certified Demeter biodynamic wines.
This Pecorino is certified `Demeter` biodynamic, this means that the vineyard has been subjected only to completely natural processes.

Bright gold in colour with an aromatic nose. A soft and pleasant wine with aromas of citrus, ripe pear, peach and orange blossom. The palate is clean and rich with a pleasing mineral complexity and a long finish. - A stunning Italian white wine.

Not to be confused with the cheese, this wine takes its name from the Italian word ‘pecora’ meaning sheep. This is due to the fact that local sheep in the region would often eat the grapes whilst walking through the vineyards.
