Cordero San Giorgio
Cordero San Giorgio is a new beginning for three siblings who grew up surrounded by vines and winemaking in Piedmonte. Francesco, Lorenzo, and Caterina Cordero have partnered to take over Tenuta San Giorgio after the previous owner had no viable succession. Their family heritage and extensive work and study abroad led them to the Oltrepò Pavese to achieve their vision in 2019.
Named for the legend of St. George and the dragon, three of San Giorgio's wines reference mythical dragons and the concept of curiosity, challenging the unknown and triumphing in discovery and knowledge, all experiences that parallel the journey of the Cordero siblings.
The estate has 22 hectares of land in total. 20 hectares of vineyards are planted between 200m - 250m to Pinot Nero, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Croatina, and Barbera. All work in the vineyard is carried out according to organic principles since July 2019 with the official organic conversion beginning in July 2021.
