treasure in the vines
A treasure to be listened to
The ripening and harvesting of the grapes is the reward for a hard year‘s work and marks the beginning of a new year of challenges and a renewed search for quality and perfection. The grapes are the ‘raw materials’ of our profession: it is not only sufficient to have the optimum soil or to use the finest cultivation techniques in the winery, there also needs to be a constant, passionate dedication and close physical contact with the vines in order to understand their secret needs or to recognize the reassuring signs of well-being…
A treasure to be cultivated
Our vines are grown using Sylvoz and cordon with spurs training systems for limited production.
Together with substantial pruning, we monitor the natural proliferation of weeds and thin on the basis of the harvest year and grape variety.
As part of a specific agronomic-oenologic decision, starting in 1995 we began mapping the vineyards and each row has been assigned an ID number for enhanced quality control and traceability.
Vineyard density is 3000 vines per hectare - a precise choice based on soil composition to prevent root competition between vines and to permit proper fruit yield without forcing or extreme measures.
