In our vineyards we grow mainly indigenous grapes, such as Barbera, Grignolino, Bonarda Piemontese and Cortese, which together cover 90% of the total production.
The rest of the production consists of three major international varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot.
The planting density is about 4500 plants/ha, with vertical trellis. We use the Guyot pruning system, with a bud load ranging from 6 to 8 buds per vine.
Our wines are the results of a perfect interaction between vines, environments and human intervention.
To ensure the naturalness and quality of the final product, we follow every stage of production with great care and attention, from the choice of the grape variety to be planted to vine cultivation, from pruning to grape harvest, up to fermentation and wine aging.
We use the controlled revegetation technique, to eliminate the use of chemical fertilizers and herbicides.
We use only organic fertilizers, to reduce pesticide treatments as much as possible.
We have been working with the “integrated farming system” since 2000, which means that we comply with the requirements of the Integrated Pest Management, as established by the European Union program for environmental protection and crop protection.
In 2012 we installed a 13 kW photovoltaic system and in 2014 a wood boiler able to heat about 400 square metres, as part of a project of “Energy autonomy” both for our house and our B&B.
