About

The young, dynamic Lorenzo Mazzucconi started Pizzo Coca in 2015. He owns 1.7 hectares of organically farmed vineyards at 400-550m, and which include sites in Grumello and Inferno. Viticulture in this small region is deemed 'heroic' with dangerously steep, narrow terraces that are totally non-mechanical. Lorenzo has a partner, Alessandro Aldisquarcina, and both are also busy establishing a self-sustaining farm. They farm produce, raises chicken, donkey and sheep and tend to 100 bee hives. Lorenzo aims to be self-sufficient. Named after the highest peak of the Orobie Alps, the winery is based in a former dairy co-op in the middle of the town of Ponte di Valtellina. Lorenzo produces wine in a natural way that respects tradition.
