The majority of our wines are grown in the Cinque Terre – a thousand years old winemaking landscape which has been inscribed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997 and protected by the Cinque Terre National Park. The work in the fields has always been a challenge for the local wine producers – to this day, the vineyards are terraced and stabilized by dry stone walls. In fact, the use of modern technology and machinery is pratically impossible. Overtime, the wine producers face the daily struggle against collapsing dry stone walls, drought, torrential rains and wild boars that feed themselves on ripe grapes and roots and sometimes destroy the walls. But on the other hand, there is this great magic here – vineyards clinging between the sea and the sky, a landscape of a stunning beauty, and a mild climate throughout the year. This area has always been famous for its white wines, but the success of Prima Terra consists also of the creation of a great red wine. Prima Terra’s other production area, Colli di Luni on the border of Tuscany, is a very interesting ancient winegrowing area where different cultures mix. Here, on the slopes of the Alpi Apuane, wine growers cultivate some very interesting red wines and, of course, the pure Vermentino. Today, Prima Terra cultivates about 6 hectares of vineyards, mainly located in the municipality of Riomaggiore and in the municipalities of Vernazza, S. Stefano Magra, Castelnuovo Magra and Carrara. The wine is made in our cellar in Campiglia (La Spezia).
