PEQ Agri is a winery in organic conversion based in Andora (SV) in western Liguria active in the sector with the Cascina Praié, Lupi and Guglierame wineries, an expression of quality and tradition of Ligurian viticulture. We only produce high quality wines that we grow directly in our 18 hectares of vineyards spread across the Ligurian territory. We grow native vines of Liguria and its DOC Riviera Ligure di Ponente di Pigato, Vermentino and Rossese Granaccia and Ormeasco di Pornassio vines, as well as lesser known but equally popular vines such as Lumassina.
The lands under cultivation are located in different areas of the Western Ligurian Riviera, including Andora and its hinterland, most of which arise from a process of recovery of abandoned and uncultivated areas, largely reduced to woods.
Through a reclamation process that includes the restoration of the ancient stone walls characteristic of the Ligurian landscape and the regulation of the waters, we are committed to enhancing the flora of our wonderful Andora valley.
Our mission is to enhance the territory. Respecting biodiversity, all our productions are differentiated according to the uniqueness of the vineyard, its soil and microclimate. Following the philosophy according to which “wine is made in the vineyard” we adopt sustainable measures both in agriculture and in the cellar.
The Guglierame winery was founded in 1860 by the heirs Ing. Guglierame handed down from generation to generation until 2021 by the brothers Raffaele and Agostino.
The company was immediately led to the exclusive production of Ormeasco wine. The cultivation of the Ormeasco grape, of noble origins (it was the wine of the Marquises of Clavesana), was introduced in 1299 with the Statute of the Gestores Universitatis Pornaxi drawn up at the time by the Notary Gandalini.
The Guglierame vineyards, located in the mountainous area at 550 m above sea level, come from the ancient farms of the Marquisate Scarella from which the Guglierame family descends and, for this reason, placed among the most suitable positions for this crop.
The Ormeasco grape has obtained the recognition of real D.O.C. with the denomination of Ormeasco di Pornassio, ruby red if vinified in red or coral pink (Ormeasco sciac-trà) if vinified in white.
The particular characteristics of the territory and the happy exposure to sunlight, together with the “naturalness” of the cultivation process and the craftsmanship of the winemaking make it possible to obtain an excellent wine from the grapes produced, of which PEQ Agri intends
With the arrival of the vineyards owned by the Guglierame family, PEQ Agri’s desire to pass on and enhance the expressive power of the Ormeasco di Pornassio grape is completed, of which we are now among the most important producers in the area.
On 11 November 2021, Saint Martin’s day, “The Confraternity of Ormeasco” met precisely from the passion of our company for this wine (after 20 years of stoppage), which has as its main purpose the promotion and dissemination of this prestigious DOC.
