Territorio

Il respiro di una terra unica tra acqua e cielo

On one side the Alps , on the other the Venice lagoon , a UNESCO heritage site. In the middle, a fertile land rich in minerals, thanks to the Livenza and Tagliamento rivers that surround it. An agricultural territory far from the big urban centers and in harmony with the surrounding nature, where some of the last still intact wetlands of Europe welcome the heron and many other migratory birds.

It is the Eastern Veneto. It is Torresella’s house.

In a land with a millenary tradition , Torresella collects the legacy of the ancient Romans and of the Serenissima, whose emperors first and then doges had elected this corner of Veneto as a granary and vineyard. A land where agriculture is rooted in the social and cultural fabric, where the marine influence offers mild winters and the north winds refresh the summers, but which also presents mankind with challenges to face. It is here, where the lagoon eaves meet the Venetian countryside, that our vineyards grow .

VINEYARDS AND VINES test

Our vineyards are the result of the productive renewal implemented by Torresella to obtain high quality wines by enhancing the territory, a process that has been undertaken since the planting phase. Over the years the Torresella vineyard has reached 135 hectares and its extension is constantly growing.

test There are several grape varieties grown, but two make up the lion’s share. We are in fact within both the Prosecco DOC , produced with the native Glera grapes, and the Pinot Grigio DOC cultivation area . 85% of the Italian production and 43% of the world production of Pinot Grigio takes place in the Northeast, and Torresella is proud to be the protagonist.

In its vocation for quality, in addition to these two wines Torresella continues the production of important reds and whites of the great Italian winemaking tradition : from native wines of the territory, such as Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso , to those of historical adoption arrived at the end of the nineteenth century. thanks to the seasonal workers from Veneto, such as Merlot , Cabernet , Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc.

ON THE SIDE OF NATURE

La valorizzazione del territorio fa parte da sempre dei principi di Torresella e passa anche per l’impegno in termini di ecosostenibilità. Rispettare l’ambiente che ci ospita è un dovere. Il nostro è un processo graduale, che tiene conto delle caratteristiche delle varietà coltivate e delle condizioni climatiche locali, affinché la sostenibilità ambientale vada di pari passo con quella sociale ed economica.

For us, eco-sustainability is a vision that is realized from the beginning of the work. In the phases of planting and subsequent management of the vineyard, we work to obtain the ideal conditions that allow us to minimize non-natural products while maintaining the quality of the wines. During the production process, the plant in which the Torresella wines are processed and bottled uses only clean energy obtained from solar panels and a biomass power plant, allowing the complete energy self-sufficiency of the plant.

Our wines are closely linked to the environment in which they are born, which is why the preservation of the territory is an essential condition of our production philosophy.

La selezione dei cloni, unita alla gestione del verde, permette la creazione di condizioni microclimatiche ideali per la maturazione dei grappoli.

Il rispetto della biodiversità permette alla flora e alla fauna dell’ecosistema di proteggere la vite da virus e agenti patogeni.

L’utilizzo dell’ala gocciolante interrata, frutto del nostro impegno per l’innovazione, offre un’irrigazione efficiente con grande risparmio di risorse idriche.

L'abbandono dei diserbanti chimici in favore delle lavorazioni meccaniche e l'assunzione di un protocollo viticolo che mette al bando i principi attivi più nocivi sono obiettivi già raggiunti.
