Vineyard care cannot be improvised. It requires great experience, much knowledge and the passion for fulfilling a laborious job, exposed to the whims of the weather and requiring years of patience. Our dose of “savoir faire” also comes from having been part of a family of wine growers for several generations, winegrowers that since childhood have made a certain way of thinking and working their second nature. However, man alone is not enough: the features of the terroir, that is to say the land and the weather, cannot certainly be under full command. Still, they represent the essential prerequisites for the creation of a great wine: we are lucky enough to work in a great terroir, so that the hand of the man only needs to operate well, accompanying nature to its own fulfillment.
Work in the vineyard follows the natural cycle of the vine, which goes from winter dormancy to spring growth and flowering, from the grapes’ maturation phase during summer to the loss of leaves in fall, eventually restarting their winter rest.
The aim of our work is to harvest high quality grapes, balanced in their components and distinguished for their perfect ripening.
This is why it is necessary to allow every single vine to achieve its harmonious balance according to the environment in which it grows. The factors for this maturation are many, and vary every year according to the seasonal pattern. A good wine grower should have the right knowledge and experience in reading the signs of nature, making the right choices at the right time, knowing his vineyard inch by inch.
