Siemàn - Veneto
Siemàn, meaning "six hands" in Venetian dialect, is run by 3 brothers, Marco, Daniele, and Andrea Filippini. Though from completely different professional paths, they came together over their mutual love for viticulture and their homeland. In the Berici Hills of Veneto, together they farm their 4 hectares organically, using predominantly native grapes to the region. With very little manipulation in the cellar, they strive to make sure each wine is distinctly terroir driven. They follow their minimal intervention farming/winemaking process by working as much as possible on cleanliness, waiting, listening and respecting the natural rhythm of the process itself. The wines rest in barrels, concrete and steel in order to enhance the characteristics of the grapes from which they originate. The wines are native yeast fermented, unfined, unfiltered, and have very minimal amounts of sulfur addition when necessary.
