Cultivation Techniques

Heritage preservation.

Preservation of the existing vine and wine heritage. The average vine age is thirty to forty-five years. This makes them vigorously balanced and capable of drawing water and mineral substances from the deeper soil layers as well as resist drought. Furthermore they do not need additional fertilizer, apart from occasional organic manuring.


In the green and dry pruning the vine trimmings are manually removed. Grass grows between the rows in the vineyard, restraining vegetation and when mowed it is left in place as a natural enrichment for nitrogenous substances. Weed killers and desiccating substances are not used, on the other hand an integrated pest management system is adopted which makes use of antagonist fungi and natural substances such as propolis.


The harvest is carried out manually after an accurate technical analysis in the vineyards to establish the right moment for grape picking in each site.
