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: that’s pruning.
Certainly, 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.
Therefore, 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. In addition, each vine must have a suitable load of grapes, depending on its location, so that all the bunches can ripen fully.
Moreover, 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.
