Zacharioudakis: Artworks, 2004-2006 from 15.09.2007
Foreword by Fabrizio
Azienda Agricola Cefalicchio is a family company devoted
to the production, manufacturing and distribution ofhigh-quality
organic agricultural products as well as to the promotion
of the food and agriculture tradition of Apulia and
of its natural environment.
Cefalicchio estate is situated only 3 km outside the
centre of Canosa di Puglia, a city noted far its rich
archaeological heritage. Cefalicchio has been in the
hands ofthe Rossi family since the middle of the nineteenth
century. A second producticion unit
- the Lama Marangi estate - is located near Minervino
Murge. Today the Azienda Agricola Cefalicchio spreads
out over a total of around 100 hectares and is nestled
in a typically Mediterranean hilly landscape that is
delightful in ali seasons.
The changeover to the bio-dynamic method of agriculture
took place in 1992. Ever since, the Azienda Agricola
Cefalicchio has pledged itselfto establishing an environment-friendly
activity that works in total harmony with its naturai
surroundings. The bio-dynamic or organic method of agriculture
highlights links and affinities (not necessarily of
a physical nature) connecting the farmer and his farm
to the surrounding environment.
Thus it comes as no surprise that the Azienda Agricola
Cefalicchio has chosen to link its principal activity
-that is, wine-making - with art. The result is the
"Wine Art /Fine Arts " programme, in which
the Azienda introduces its public to Italian and foreign
artists whose works transmit the same patience and care
we transfuse daily into our wines.
