TEDxPalermo - Francesco Guccione - Cultural DNA in Sustainable Winemaking

For Francesco Guccione the biodynamics is a reason for life; from the philosophy of Steiner to his friend Nicolas Joly's advices: wine is made between heaven and earth. Francesco, together with his brother Manfredi, transforms only the grapes cultivated in the farm. A farmer all along, he is grateful to his father for having invested in the biological production during the periods characterized by the widespread use of chemistry. He knows, loves and respects the ground. It has been cultivated for more than 500 years carrying on the great passion. The creed is to produce wines, taking into consideration that a healthy agriculture allows the ground to better express. Now Francesco and Manfredi Guccione run the homonymous farm, located 35 km far from Palermo, in the municipality of Monreale, Cerasa district, between San Cipirrello and Piana degli Albanesi. It is a biological certified farm since 1996 and biodynamic since 2005. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
