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.
Lupi is the Ligurian wine par excellence, among the very first Ligurian wines to be labeled DOC.
Ideal for anniversaries and in combination with important dinners, Lupi wines are traditional wines that appeal to a demanding and competent clientele. An elegant and precious wine.
The story of Casa Lupi began in 1960 when Tommaso Lupi, at the age of 24, decided to follow his passion, buying a beautiful building from the 1300s in the heart of Pieve di Teco and transforming it into a modern and avant-garde cellar, where we still make different wines. DOC. Lupi soon became a guarantee of quality, conquering not only the Riviera, but also the palates of refined critics such as that of Mario Soldati (lover of Ormeasco) and a bottle of Vermentino Lupi ended up in a Hollywood cult film, The Sleepers, splendid and dark film of 1996 with a stellar cast.The winery also became a pioneer in the way of making wine in Liguria, thanks to the far-sighted intuition of Tommaso Lupi who, coming out of the schemes of the Ligurian white wine making, was the first to have dedicated to the great PIGATO attention, making it the first Ligurian white wine suited to aging. Thus was born the VIGNAMARE, which we like to define “Super Liguriam”, top of the range of the brand, refined at least two years and winner of prestigious awards.
In 2020, the acquisition in PEQ Agri was born from the desire to preserve the brand of a company that is a symbol of Ligurian wine and raise it more and more. Continuity with the past and with its tradition was guaranteed by bringing the direct experience of the winemaker Alex Berriolo who remained at the head of the company’s wine production.
