Located in the heart of Tuscany, in the productive area of Chianti, Agricola Ludus was born in 2015 by the will of Luciano Squilloni, who decided to plant vines in a wildlife reserve more than 500-acres-wide.
Vines are planted the same year the beloved granddaughter Ludovica was born. The choice of vine is highly symbolic- a tribute to the new life recently welcomed to the family, and to the strength of Life, who shares the same roots of Vite (Italian for vines).
Love and respect for nature, generation after generation Luciano Alberto
Vineyards of Agricola Ludus are found in territories which have been awarded the status of Azienda Faunistico Venatoria, Hunting and Fauna Reserve, since the second half of the seventeenth century. This has guaranteed a high preservation of nature, with secular forests alternating to fields dedicated to the seeding of traditional varieties alfalfa, sorghum, and wild herbs) along with creeks and small lakes. Fauna lives free: birds, hoofed animals and other breeds typical of the Tuscan countryside, which find food and shelter without any risks.
In an eye of respect for nature, vineyards of Agricola Ludus are currently going through organic conversion.
