The microclimate areas are as different as the soils in the Bozen area. We have therefore always paid special attention to cultivating the most suitable grape varieties for each of our locations.
Experiment, experience and scientific examination of the soil profile all help in choosing the right vines.
The knobbly vines in the old vineyards nevertheless also represent a wealth of a special kind. These “veterans”, some up to 100 years old, yield little by way of quantity – but plenty in terms of quality.
Our members, assisted by the South Tyrolean Consultancy Circle for Fruit- and Wine-growing, are advised and trained in all matters relevant to viticulture. Chemical analyses of the leaves and grapes keep the plants in the best of health and allow the best harvest time to be determined.
Plant protection can be summed up as follows: as much as necessary, as little as possible. Using natural methods ensures the equilibrium of the vineyard habitat without having to rely on the extensive use of herbicides.
Particular wine growers in the best locations have formed quality groups dedicated to the cultivation of grapes for use in our selections and top ranges. The emphasis is on mutual assistance and the exchange of experience, as well as rigid restrictions on vineyard yields.
