Vines growth management to achieve berries maturity
Since 1996, to strengthen the vines and with environmental objectives, we mechanically work the topsoil, without herbicide; the phytosanitary protection is achieved without insecticide.
The leaf surface is kept at the right volume by successive trimming to control photosynthesis, hence the amount of sugar provided to the grapes.
Early July, thinning out leaves over the clusters increases berries’ exposure to solar energy, which is necessary for the formation of tannins, anthocyanins and aroma. At the same time, clusters are exposed to additional breeze, preventing the development of botrytis.
