The way we work:

In our farm, since the ’80, we use the method of "integrated pest management" (IPM) to fight all the problems (plant diseases, soil diseases) in our vineyards and fields. This method consist in smart use of pesticides, soil, energy and water, in aim to cause less damage to the environment and to humans.











Following this idea in fact in our company we have developed a photovoltaic system of 30 kw of power to provide clean electricity to our cellar, offices and home.

















Residues of pruning vineyards are picked, packed, desiccated and burned during the winter to heat buildings, with sustainable use of resources that are naturally present in the farm.

















And last but not least we have always paid attention to the safety and health of employees of the company, always using the latest technology machinery, that are more safe, with lower emissions, which reduce the fatigue of the workers and the environmental impact.
