Our environmental sustainability
Climate trend analysis by introducing weather huts in the vineyards that analyze climatic data (air and soil temperature, air humidity, rain, leaf wetness, solar irradiation, wind direction and speed) fundamental for the reduction of the number of treatments for the control of plant diseases, such as powdery mildew or downy mildew. These data are transmitted in real time to the company and only when there are certain conditions do you enter the field to carry out the targeted treatment with low environmental impact products, in a timely and precise way, without waste.
Respect for soil biodiversity: living organisms, with their continuous activity, favor the biodiversity of the different soils. Thanks to a correct management it is possible to keep the microbial flora of the soil unaltered and active for the mineralization of the organic substance. Two examples of our work in this regard are:
Organic fertilization: we use mature bovine manure, distributed in autumn and winter to provide organic substance to the land, respecting and improving its structure. In clay soils, soil compaction is thus avoided, while in sandy soils there is greater water retention.
Mechanical control of weeds: in the spring-summer period the weeds under the rows of vineyards are eliminated with a light tillage of the soil, so we allow the roots to go deep into the soil to look for water and nutrients, thus making the plant more resistant in case of drought.
Maintenance of natural groves among the vineyards for the repopulation of the local fauna.
Maintenance of ditches and dirt roads for water regulation.
