We strongly believe in resistant vines. Despite today the phytosanitary struggle is conducted with active principles more respectful compared to the past, viticulture remains the most impactful agricultural activity and the reduction in the use of fungicides and environmental resources are considered today the priorities in the wine sector. But what are resistant vines? Following the path of many farmers, first of all the German winemakers, these vines, the result of a scrupulous program of crossing and selection of new generation vines resistant to downy mildew and powdery mildew (NO GMO), allow to reduce treatments to 2-3 per year and to plant them adjacent to houses and schools as they preserve the ecosystem and permit a sustainable cultivation.
An ecological agriculture
“That of resistant vines is a project that we support with confidence, which will lead us to the realization of sustainable wines that have undergone only 2 treatments per year in the vineyard. This year, the vinifications of these particular vines that we have approached, 3 white grapes (Solaris, Johanniter and Bronner) and a red grape, are exalting its primary characteristics. For whites: slightly aromatic, exotic and well-structured aromas. For the red: perfumes of violets and red berries like wild strawberries and currants. We expect a lot but there is still a lot to do “. Grapes without pesticides and wines without residues, reduction of labour for less treatments’ need and, consequently, less use of machines and lower consumption of diesel fuel, with reduction of pollution. These are just some of the reasons and advantages connected to the cultivation of resistant vines that today represent the only possible way towards an “ecological” viticulture compatible with the future and the environmentally friendly.
