Our hands are the tools with whom we look after our land. During busy times, we never forget the artisanal techniques that keep us in close contact with nature; technology is a great additional help for vineyards and winemakers, but we don’t adapt it to our land and territory and we use it accordingly.
Our working ethic is supported by strong spiritual principles; we feel part of an agricultural association that wants to be self-sufficient. For this reason, alongside vineyards we have our farm animals, we produce our own compost, we strive to enhance the vitality of the fields. The manpower is a corporate workmanship, including the harvest that involves young students and experienced seniors: this is the harvesting feast, the meeting point between different generations that keeps traditions alive.
Hold our hands and you will understand that these are working hands. Well, Clara’s hand aren’t yet…
Every athlete comes with a good trainer. Our trainer is our mother who tought us and still supports us trough every new venture.
For many years now we have been replacing plastic materials in our vineyards with biodegradable materials because we feel it is our duty to make a better world for our children.
Workers but friends too, the harvest it’s a big event where we work all together like a big family .
The harvest is a crucial moment. For the grape this cut resembles the opening curtain for an actor on the stage. Once the show is started, it cannot be stopped. The first and the most important selection of the bunches happens in the field, because our workers are with us for years.
Just by working directly with our hands, it is possible to comprehend the peculiarity of the vineyards in order to unlock their potential.
On the farm we have a few goats; these eat waste products like the pruned branches of the olive trees and they forced us to plant hay in our bare fields. Their manure is fundamental for the compost with other vegetable waste, including marcs.
The donkeys help us to keep certain fields clean, but first of all they cheer us up with their congeniality. Donkeys are meditative and mild creatures, they are good life coachers.
Solo il compost prodotto in azienda è in grado di riportare la vita nei terreni, e lo realizziamo con tutti gli scarti vegetali, dalle potature alla vinaccia. Come attivante usiamo il letame dei nostri animali.
