Sustainable Development

We place great importance to sustainable development, both in the vineyard and in the winery, constantly optimising production processes to save energy, preserve resources and to reduce non-recyclable waste.

The Origin

The composition of the soil and its geological origin is one of the factors that greatly influences the quality of the grapes. Our vineyards are located within the designated ASOLO DOCG area and are situated on the steepest slopes of the Asolo hills. This area has a clayey-based soil on which mostly rests “calcareous marls”, that is rocks sedimented over the centuries and mainly consisting of limestone mixed with thinner clayey and pebbly material, called “sandstone”. With a heart as hard as stone, but with an intriguing fragility, clay knows exactly how to adapt to its surrounding environment and climate. This contrast is reflected in the great intensity and velvety elegance of our wines.

In the Vineyard

By increasing manual operations in the vineyard, we were able to lower the use of mechanical means and related phytosanitary treatments with the reduction of soil compaction to the benefit of the microclimate of the vineyard, while maximizing all the wild microfauna.

The Harvest

The harvest is carried out entirely by hand, to maintain the complete integrity of the bunches until they arrive in the cellar, where, in a short time, the grapes are gently pressed and the must subsequently obtained, begins the process of alcoholic fermentation, i.e. the transformation of grapes sugars into alcohol. We have developed a system for managing carbon dioxide during primary fermentation, which helps to limit the oxidative effects of oxygen in the wine; by doing so, we are able to considerably reduce the addition of sulphites to the wine and allow us to certify this on the back label of our bottles. In the winery, once the grapes have been pressed, all the marcs are collected and turned into compost, which will become a beneficial organic biofertilizer for our vineyards.

DISCOVER THE WINERY

The hills of Asolo are one of the smallest wine-growing areas in Italy: here the privileged microclimate compensates this lack of extension with the high quality of its wines.
