Back to Earth

For years I have wondered how the work of my family could contribute to the reconciliation of future generations to the agricultural culture, to the nature and the earth. In 2005 we began a creative path, a search through contemporary art. We started from a field which is very distant from the harshness of the agricultural world but shares with it a fundamental element. The mass consumption industry, the big figures of artificial society, the small rules of modern individualism have reduced the way things are done to a fragmented, scientific, alienated process. Today more than ever we need people who devote their time to contemplate the world around them, able to open themselves to nature, to give themselves, ‘till establish a new relationship with the world.

This is one way of the artist to create and the method by which modern farmers can awaken in themselves the sense of ancestral land. To produce something good it is no longer enough to learn, understand and take action careless… you must first establish a deep relationship with the world around; this is where both the artist’ and the winemaker’s gestures are exactly the same. In this selection we have gathered our best wines produced from estate vineyards and we approached them to works of art preserved in the Castellani family art collection. We thank all the artists for allowing us to associate their works to our most important wines and having collaborated with the “Materia Prima” project.
