Fattoria San Lorenzo is a third generation family winery that is completely organic and biodynamic. Enrico Crognaletti was a master cooper who founded the estate, and handed it down to his son Gino, who spent his life filling the vineyards of his estate with the best clones of Verdicchio from around the area.
Gino left the estate to Natalino Crognaletti, who’s been running things ever since. Under Natalino’s guidance, the estate has seen its wines imported to all corners of the globe, and develop become standard bearers for the Marche.
Since 1995 Natalino has made the family estate his.
Natalino is a big personality who’s wines express his spirit for experimentation. His labels express his love for animals. His enthusiasm is the stuff of legend.
