Careful management of the vineyard that respects the land
We firmly believe that the best fruits can only be obtained by respecting the environment.
This is why we want to keep human intervention to a minimum and uphold the natural
balances that already exist.
Every action is performed in accordance with tradition, to achieve continuity between past and
present. The wisdom and experience of the people who understand the land have always
inspired and guided our approach.
An age-old activity, a long and meticulous job
performed in the vineyard at the end of winter,
before vegetative growth resumes.
Experience is fundamental to understand and
support the behaviour of each vine, to give the
branches the best shape and to leave the shoots
that will produce the right vegetation.
Performed entirely by hand, pruning is
fundamental in determining the quality of the grapes
because it influences the vines’ productive capability
and the ripening of the fruit.
We use the Guyout pruning system.
Selection of the grapes
Each vine, depending on its vigour, must be able to
concentrate all its vital energy on the fruit so that it
ripens fully: to ensure this, several inspections are
made in the vineyards to examine every plant
and thin out the clusters. Each vine must have a
suitable load of grapes, depending on its location,
so that all the bunches can ripen fully.
During the phenological stage when the grapes
begin to change colour, an additional selection is
made to remove the weaker clusters.
Thinning out and selection are jobs performed by
experts who know how to assess the state of a
vine and its fruit at a glance. This skilled work
ensures that only the healthiest and most vigorous
bunches of grapes are harvested.
A quality wine begins life in the vineyard.
