AWARDS RECEIVED IN 2022
It has been an exciting and intense time since we published our new website in June, 2022 and sent out our last Newsletter.
Since that time we have been fully engaged with the production and marketing of our organic wines and olive oil, while remaining in touch with the ungraspable beauty of the nature surrounding us, listening to those precious moments which are beyond words.
We are grateful for the silent retreats which allow us to be with the essence of life again and again.
More about the retreats on our next blog.
Chianti Classico tasting competition 2022
In an online competition for the most beautiful label amongst 86 Chianti Classico wines, we were proud to receive the award for the best label.
Here is what Decanto wrote: “We tasted all the wines in a blind tasting, reserving our Instagram users the privilege of electing the best label by voting via their Instagram page. The award MIGLIOR ETICHETTA, best label, was received by the Azienda POCI for their Chianti Classico 2019 with 219 votes in the final against the Brancaia winery. POCI had brilliantly surpassed all the qualifications, the quarterfinals and the semifinals. Poci’s label was designed by the Andrea Castelletti Studio and feature the beautiful illustrations by Gianluca Foli They tell the story of a vibrant wine that comes from a love for nature. They invite the viewer to seek, make discoveries and change perspectives in order to find their hidden message.”

SALES OF OUR PRODUCTS
The best way to buy our wines and olive oil is to order directly thru email@example.com.
We are also selling regionally in Tuscany, Munich and Switzerland and hope to spread our wings even more next year.
We participated in the Chianti Classico Collection in Florence, in February, 2022.
We also participated in the Chianti Classico Degustazione event in Munich in the Künstlerhaus in November. Great atmosphere, great contacts!
We are looking forward to our participation in three other important wine fairs: BUY WINE and CHIANTI CLASSICO COLLECTION 2023 in Florence and SLOW WINE in Bologna with the intention to enter international markets.
Our ever changing river
From a stream to a river to a turquoise current. Amazing changes.
After a long dry summer praying for rain, in late September arrived an enormous outpour of rains. It literally rained us a river, flooded our bridge, cleaned the river bed and purified the water to such a degree that its colour turned turquoise and we could see each pebble at the very bottom of the riverbed.
Indeed, Poci is “tales of nature” and as written on the back labels of our wines:
“It is here where nature performs every day anew where our wines are born.”
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
