Our handbook to ensure the sustainability
1. We handle our soils with the maximum respect. We avoid every activity that can cause problems to the structure of the soil, with some consequences for the organisms who live in it. For this purpose, we do not use machines with high-speed working parts in order to avoid the destruction of the structure soil.
2. We practice the grassing, by using the technique known as “direct seeding”. This technique allows reducing the mechanized work and the carbon dioxide emissions in the air. Since 2023, 50% of vineyards will be grassed with the mixed Apis Mellifera, consisting of Facella, Meliloto, Radano, Senape, Trifoglio incarnato, Trifoglio Micheliano, Vecia villosa, Lupinella sguasciata, Trifoglio alessandrino, Trifoglio persico, Finocchio selvatico.
3. We minimize the waste of water. Thanks to the characteristics of the subsoil, with the presence of an impermeable layer of volcanic rock, in the surrounding area of the farm grounds there are different water sources in order to face the water needs of crops. Thanks to a network of farm canals, we are able to pipe the canals water and the surface rainwater in a basin. In this way, we can use this water, for a possible emergency irrigation into the vineyards, through the drip irrigation system.
