In 1984, we began aiming for sustainable growth; step by step, our commitment continues.
For us, eco-sustainability is a vision that materializes from the very beginning of the work.
Our vineyard plantings
In an area in which the ancient Romans had already realized the potential for producing wine, the solutions we have adopted when planting our vineyards – from the width of the rows to the distance between the individual vines, as well as the agronomical choices we have made – have established new standards of quality and sustainability.
Compared to classic irrigation by means of sprinkling, the introduction of drip irrigation has allowed us to reduce our water consumption by almost 100 times.
Any fertilization is carried out on the vine roots, with very small quantities indeed. Instead of a single application of fertilizer in the spring, we perform micro-interventions guided by leaf analysis, which allow us better control of our crops.
Use of CorTen steel
For the support poles in our vineyards we use CorTen. The autoprotective rust produced by this type of steel, combined with this material’s qualities of elasticity and resistance, allow us to create long-lasting plantings that have a lesser visual impact compared to others that use zinc-coated or cement poles.
