The story of indomiti begins with a journey in search of the self, on the other side of the world.
It begins with a young man called Simone Ambrosini who, rebellious and curious, decides to migrate to Australia, without a compass, guided only by the desire to be surprised. In his journey of disorientation, Simone decides to work in different farms and stables; the commitment to agriculture quenches his dreamy and abstract attitude that begins to trace roots, anchoring his feet to the living earth. His heart dreams of a creative job, which finds concreteness in the expression of his deepest desires. Perhaps the way is the earth. Then the discovery of the world of wine: and it is immediately love.
Simone, once back in Italy, decides to start his university studies in Enology and Viticulture. After graduation and the first working experiences in different wineries, the job of employee begins to be too tight, the belly starts to churn and so do the ideas.An irrepressible need to change direction pushes him towards a new place, still unexplored.
Making wine for other people is a role that no longer suits him. So, just for fun, he starts to imagine his reality.
Without land, without family heritage, without a tractor, but full of enthusiasm and good intentions
It was 2018, he was 26 years old, with long hair and a wallet full of ambition.
Where to start? With one impossible thing at a time. First of all, with a vineyard to cultivate.
The search in the Berici Hills in the south of Vicenza, his homeland, finally begins. The news moves fast, from mouth to mouth, until Simone finds a 60-year-old pergola and a plot of indigenous varieties for rent, half-abandoned, surrounded only by woods, above Lake Fimon, in Arcugnano. Three hectares inhabited by hillside vines, steep and old, with a great desire to tell their story.
Restoration work began to give back a voice to those vines, which had been fighting for life for a lifetime. Hence the name "indomiti", a reflection of the struggle for life of reckless humans, old vines, and disobedient wines.
The second step is the search for a winery, Simone knocks on the door of several wine producers with the hope of being able to share a corner of their space. From year to year in fact, and still today, he wanders around looking for a place to stay.
After all, agricultural philosophy works on forgetting oneself. In the vineyard, the human imprint is only a careful distant presence.
Indomiti wines are free to be themselves, they ferment in a naked way, contrary to the banality of taste, far from chemical and physical interferences that limit their sincerity.
This is just the beginning of a story, that of indomiti, which sees in its future a phase of evolution, with its vineyard and winery. This is our dream. To find a piece of land. To put it in order, in the matter, and in the spirit to live in balance.
