Dear friends of Sequerciani
The current situation is a great challenge, we are realising just now what this means to all of us. Life in Italy is completely halted, locked up. People are not even allowed to leave the apartment.
Yet the area around our Sequerciani, around Tatti and the whole Maremma, fortunately with very few Corona cases, continues to breathe the delicate, spicy spring air which inspires us.
Our hands are tied, for sure, but not totally as at least agriculture continues.
As Nehru once said in India: "Everything can wait, but not agriculture".
It provides the basis of our lives, with the vines being cut, the olive trees being trimmed, the fields are sown, the garden is brought out of hibernation and the newly planted vineyards are also taking shape.
This is "the Sequerciani way".
Sequerciani, which overlook the wonderful landscape, continues to bloom during the spring of 2020 and represents an oasis of time and peace, of beautiful scenery and the power of nature. Right now, we are (still) alone though, without guests and must be patient.
The rhythm of nature has always characterized this area. This special spirit is still very much alive and supports us there along with our enthusiastic local staff, as well as all the friends of Sequerciani who have already visited or who are planning to do so.
Wherever we find ourselves now we have time for our thoughts, reflections, for our families or ourselves and for pleasure and creative ideas and plans. Soon everything will open again, step by step. Everything will become accessible. We will then gently introduce an "Ospitalità responsabile", a responsible tourism and combine it with our agriculture.
That is the spirit which you will find in all our products and your body and soul will benefit as a result. During this time at home one can appreciate our special natural wines and our pasta with the delicious olive oil. Let the fine taste of Sequerciani melt on your tongue and begin to travel with your senses.
Sequerciani also offers a wide range of biodynamic products: various Demeter-certified red and white natural wines, extra virgin olive oil (new harvest!) and a selection of tasty pasta variations, which are made from different old wheat varieties grown on our soil.
So please feel free to let your mind wonder through the flowers, olive groves, vineyards and the endless woods of the Maremma.
Think of the people who have created so much culture and are now in the need of support, without income and mostly cut off at home.
Many of these locals even manage to make a virtue out of necessity by singing together on balconies, encouraging each other.
You will be sure to find this creative and passionate Italian zest for life in every sip of our wine and in every bite of our products which are indeed made with love.
With warmest regards
Ruedi Gerber and all Sequerciani Team
