We have been located at the foothills of the Veneto region in the Treviso province, the best suited for wine production, in the heart of the CONEGLIANO VALDOBBIADENE DOCG production area.
he micro-climate is influenced by the proximity of the Pre-Alps and the morphology of the hills, which even in winter provide breezy, quite dry days with big ranges in temperature and winter frosts. This gives Prosecco stability and structure and it lessens the formation of plant parasites and diseases. In fact, from June up until the harvest we only apply natural, organic treatments to the grapes, as stated by the wine-making protocol from the Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG consortium.
he grapes don’t need highly fertile land. They actually prefer poor-quality soil which differs in composition and texture. It is a plant which can adapt to any type of soil, and that is why the vine variety itself never gives identical grapes when cultivated on land using different techniques. The chemical constitution of the terrain in the production area of the CONEGLIANO VALDOBBIADENE DOCG is ideal for this type of cultivation.
he type of training used is the double Guyot, or the upside-down system, which as a result provides a more uniform vegetation along the vines and thus a greater yield and a tidier distribution of the grape. This technique is particularly suitable for hilly terrain and those where there is a shortage of water.
n our vineyards the harvest is manual, and the bunches of grapes are collected in a crate in order to keep them whole and prevent them from oxidising before pressing. This allows us to not involve chemical treatments after the harvest. Our vineyards can be divided up into three main areas: Refrontolo, Solighetto and Sernaglia della Battaglia.
