Every year the roots go deeper, and every year the fruit mirrors this lasting bond. In the same way every year green arms sprawl out to give a renewed original character to the fruit. An equilibrium among persistence in the character and talent of variability. This is nature’s verb.
The understanding of this verb resides in farmer’s experience. To know all the shades of its own vineyards and the wisdom to react at their mutations. The grower establishes an empathic connection with everything around them.
This fragile sensibility can only be learnt persevering through generations. Accomplished by knowledge handed down from father to son
Paitin is the name of a property that the Elia family owned on the botrder between Neive, in the province of Cuneo and Castagnole, in the province of Asti. Having to do with their private bank in both provinces, this property was to them strategic, so that they were named after this property: Paitin.
For this reason when they bought in 1796 the Sorì on the Bricco di Neive (now Serraboella Cru), this was named the Sorì ‘d Paitin (Pajtin in old Italian) meaning the Sorì property of Paitin.
