The estate of La Raia is owned by the Rossi Cairo family and comprises 40 hectares of vineyards alongside 60 hectares of fields and elderflower & acacia woodlands. They began to farm following biodynamic practices in 2003, also taking a decision to foster the growth of these woodlands in order to protect the natural ecosystem of the area. The vineyard is located at 400 metres above sea level, on calcareous and clay soils. With vines ranging from 10-70 years of age, the team are blessed with the opportunity to create a number of unique cuvees from the lower yielding zones of the vineyard, handpicking all of their harvest each year.
