The varieties present in our vineyards are typical of the Trebbia Valley: Barbera, Bonarda, Malvasia di Candia, Ortrugo, Sauvignon, Trebbiano and Marsanne. The vineyards are often old, recovered from elderly winemakers who were no longer able to take care of them, with the exception of Pinot Noir, which we have planted since 1997.
In our vineyards we do not use chemical fertilizers and herbicides, as is normally the case in industrial winemaking, but only methods of plant defense taken from the local tradition. Our goal is to grow healthy vines, able to resist parasites and feed themselves.
At harvest time, the grapes are picked by hand and the best bunches are selected directly in the vineyard. Unripe or damaged bunches are discarded. The grapes are harvested in small containers to avoid being crushed under their own weight.
