After the international fairs, we are now full time committed in the winery and in the vineyards. During winter we pruned our vines and with spring’s arrival we are now replacing the old vines.
Our vines are between 50 to 90 years old, with examples which pass 100 years on Magnavacche hill.
Every year we check the vines situation and replace them where necessary. The main cause of vines death is ageing, beyond that other factors are due to fungi which attack the plant or climate.
After one year from the vine shoot’s plantation, buds start to appear and after the second year the shoot grows and is fasten. The first bunches of grapes start after the third year of the vine’s life.
