Our Vineyards

The company has a total area of 172 ha, almost all facing South, from which 42 planted with vineyards.
Hills are arranged like an amphitheater, creating a microclimate in which the weather conditions make particularly favorable the development of viticulture.
The soil is predominantly clayey and in few well defined small areas there are calcareous veins.
The height varies from 170 to 220 m above sea level.


Treatment of soils:

The preparation of the soil on which we plant our vineyards lasts about three years, period in which our goal is to recreate suitable conditions for the proper development of young vines.

Soil management is based on harrowing and green manure; no herbicides are used in the vineyards. The different herbaceous plants enrich the soil with organic matter and help to combat the weeds. The works performed are aimed at the structuring of the soils and at creating an environment as favorable as possible for the grape vines. We pay great attention to the depth works in the vineyards to ensure the proper growth of the roots.

Treatment of grape vines:

Planting density reaches 6250 plants per hectare and the conducting systems are Guyot (34 ha) and Spurred Cordon (8 ha).
No machine can ensure the quality work and the care of the human eyes and trained hands. That is why all the management of the vines is made by hand. It is laborious, but it absolutely worth it.

The treatments used for the prevention of the diseases are reduced to a minimum level and the products used are suited for the biological viticulture. The prevention of the diseases is made especially through a particular attention during the phases of trimming and maintaining the foliar apparatus.

Grape cluster thinning works are also performed in order to optimize the quality of the production.

The ripening of the grapes is strictly monitored and our attention is focused on several parameters: chemical, physical, sensorial. Based on all these factors we decide the right moment for harvest.
