In the local dialect of Veneto, 'sie man' means 'six hands'. The hands we are talking about belong to three brothers Marco, Daniele and Andrea Filippini. their farm is in Villaga, in the area of Barbarano Vicentino in the Colli Berici, In Veneto.
On the hilly slopes of their estate, the Filippini brothers grow several grape varieties. The soil is a varied mixture of sand, clay, silt and volcanic rock.
The varieties thriving here include:
Red grapes - Tai rosso, Turchetta, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot nero.
White grapes - Garganega, Moscato bianco, Incrocio Manzoni.
Expertly handled, the various grapes are used to produce wines of great character, with minimal intervention during the vinification process. The precious liquid rests and ages in wood, concrete and steel, as appropriate. the final products are bold and sophisticated wines which are true to the territory and make for incredibly rewarding drinking.
Siemàn set aside part of their harvest for beer productions. Their sour beers are brewed in wooden barrels with minimal intervention, relying mainly on time and expertise. Their taste express character and their close ties to wine.
