The Vineyards

We take care personally of our vineyards

Our vineyards (approximately 10 hectares of them) are located around the farm in the town of Alba, at an average altitude of 350 metres.
We take care personally of our vineyards paying close attention to the environment: this has been leading us for years to join the integrated pest management in order to respect the natural cycle of the vine. The training system is Guyot and pruning is done following the willow tree method.

The vineyard has a regular south-western exposure, the soil here is made up of clay and chalk. Planted in 1970, it is now the oldest vine of the company with its 40 years history and it bears fruit in a class of its own.
