“It was the Squirrel that chose Le Sorgenti, populating its park and woods. This curious and prudent animal is the keeper of the forests and the symbol of continuity as the part of his winter food supply that he buries and often grows into new trees. This is the animal with whom we wish to identify our Estate and our philosophy - like us, he is the temporary custodian of a greater heritage, the Land”.
Living is no laughing matter:
you must live with great seriousness, like a sq uirrel, for example -
I mean without looking for something beyond and above living,
I mean living must be your whole occupation. ( Nazim Hikmet )
This is the way Gabriele Ferrari likes to explain the choice of the Estate’s logo and to express his feelings about the property that has grown up with his family since 1974. Expert vine and olive-grower, he personally runs the farm while his wife, Elisabetta, manages the Estate and lovingly devotes herself to gardening and beekeeping.
