Aurora is not just a farm – it is a way of life. In 1979 five partners joined together to set up their own version of a utopian life. Leaving their jobs as industrial workers they moved to the Marche and pioneered and promoted organic farming techniques. They live together and work together and they have done so for thirty years. Aurora is a place of solidarity and sustenance where you can feel the joy that comes from being together.
The farm has been organic since the start and we did not see healthier vineyards anywhere else in Italy. Aurora is now the leading light of organic farming in the Marche and the partners are looked to as mentors by other farmers in the area.
The vineyards are a model of natural and organic farming. Stepping into these vineyards is surreal because they are teeming with life. Just one footfall onto the healthy green cover crops between the vines causes an eruption of life, insects scatter, rodents run for cover and the birds start warning. The experience was unique.
They also make amazing wine.
