Annual and Green pruning. We do all pruning ourselves by hand. When the weather permits, we respect the lunar calendar. For Umbrians this is traditional. They know how the moon affects each crop and we are learning from them. We trim the plants when they reach a certain height to protect them from high winds and eliminate unwanted branches.
Vineyard maintenance: We control weeds and grass cover mechanically.
We treat the vines between April and August. The vast majority of products we use are permissible under organic regulations.
All waste from pruning is left on the vineyards and when we mow the grass, it gets broken down and helps generate organic matter in the soil.
Maximum annual production: Grapes 6,000kg. Prior to both harvest and crushing, we check the quality of the grapes to ensure only the best go into our wine.
By choice we keep the production from our vineyards low, in order keep the quality high.
This allows us to keep the use of sulphites to a minimum during the vinification process.
