Dwight, Raffaele and the sustainable life
Dwight (from central US – general surgeon for 25 years) and Raffaele (from Ascoli Piceno, journalist), the owners of Nascondiglio di Bacco met while attending the University of Gastronomic Science near Parma where both obtained masters degrees in gastronomic science and quality food products. There they built the crazy idea to make a world class wine together. During a long search throughout Italy for an appropriate vineyard, the search was narrowed to the Marche where Nascondiglio di Bacco was waiting with nearly 20 acres ready for planning and planting.
Time passed with the pool construction and the care needed for 30,000 grapevines of 8 varieties the process of building the winery and the 1st white wine released in 2011.
They follow the tenets of Slow Food believing in products which are “good, clean and just” or in other words which respect tradition, are made in a way which respects nature, and are sustainable. In their B&B, they compost, recycle and save energy in all ways practical. Their fields are organic certified.
They have a garden where they grow fruit trees which supply figs, pears, apricots and almonds among others.
They use low consumption lightbulbs, biological soaps for the bathrooms.
They hope to share our philosophy with you and at the end, hopefully we can leave the world a bit cleaner and healthier.
