Our Harvest



Harvest Diary




 


 

The secret of growing

Every plant represents a challenge that inflames the soul. From the strong and luxuriant younger plants which give fresh and fruity wines to the older ones, expression of stories of hands and stories of love. In June, when sun warms air, expert farmers prune and thin out bunches of grapes, leaving just few ones on the plants.
Green pruning is an old technique sacrificing quantity for a quality which will be both the pride of all efforts and the soul of our great wines. We work with passion and patience to grow our vineyards in a natural way, without using any chemical fertilizers or weed killers, respecting the natural cycle of the plants as well as all life of the land and soil, which we lovingly feed with organic fertilizers only. All our vineyards – in fact – are grown with organic methods; they are surrounded by hedges and trees, just a small step away from the sea, in a healthy, natural environment.




 

Harvesting and wine-making

When grapes are ready and the sun is still low, we harvest them with passion and care. We pick up “ready” bunches one by one, lay them down in little airy crates and carry them to the winery, a magical place where tradition embraces innovation. Thanks to an advanced sorting table, experienced hands select just the best grapes that most innovative technologies transform in high-quality wines, a true expression of a unique terroir.
