Feeling as guest

Walking along rows, entering woods. Feeling the murmur of leaves while vine stems grow and buds open into flowers and leaves. Growth is continuous: the perpetual motion of life invokes all the elements and, like a conductor of an orchestra, conveys energies to the composition of the vineyard. And so, listen and then observe and smell! So you can understand how sunlight strikes it, winds shake it, rain quenches it, and temperature fluctuations typify it. So you can choose the grape varieties to plant, and where to plant them. And then, skilfully turn over the soil, widen the hole with your fingers and plant the vine. The roots push downwards to explore the earth, in that welcoming depth, teeming with life. We do not enter vineyards as owners. We enter as guests.

Our vineyards

The Cartizze area in the municipality of Valdobbiadene, the hamlet of Santo Stefano

 

Vineyard

COLESEL

 

Cartizze Brut DOCG – Cartizze Dry DOCG

Morphology

Marly limestone and clay dating back to the Eocene, Oligocene and Miocene geological eras. These formations are located to the south of the clayey area in parallel belts running from west to east. They are the most interesting formations for the cultivation of our Prosecco vines.

Soil depth

From 20 – 60 cm, with good mineral composition, loose with good rain drainage. Good yearly reserves are guaranteed for vines, which grow in a constant and balanced manner.

Ventilation

From good to strong, favoured by the position of the Colesel hill in the territory.

Slope

from 40% to 100%

Cartizze Brut DOCG – Cartizze Dry DOCG

Morphology

Marly limestone and clay dating back to the Eocene, Oligocene and Miocene geological eras. These formations are located to the south of the clayey area in parallel belts running from west to east. These are the most interesting formations for the cultivation of our Prosecco vines.

Soil depth

From 20 – 40 cm, good rain drainage and a good reserve is guaranteed for the vines, enabling them to grow in a balanced manner.

Ventilation

Good, favoured by the closeness of the mountains, which cause a continuous exchange of air due to the thermal columns formed

Cartizze Brut DOCG – Cartizze Dry DOCG

Morphology

Marly limestone and clay dating back to the Eocene, Oligocene and Miocene geological eras. These formations are located to the south of the clayey area in parallel belts running from west to east. These are the most interesting formations for the cultivation of our Prosecco vines.

Soil depth

From 40 – 60 cm, very varied soil with moraines, sandstone and clays that provide excellent water drainage and a constant supply. This allows the vines to grow in a well-balanced manner.

Ventilation

Good to strong, favoured by the mountainous terrain around Santo Stefano.

Valdobbiadene, in the hamlet of Santo Stefano

 

Vineyard

Fontana Vecia

 

Valdobbiadene Extra Dry DOCG

Morphology

Medium-textured, clayey and stony. Located above the road between Valdobbiadene and Guia, dating back to the Cretaceous geological era (early, middle and late)

Soil depth

From 40 – 60 cm, very rich in minerals that nourish the vines well and give the grapes their very special characteristics, which can then be found well-blended in the wine glass

Ventilation

Good due to the location of the vineyard at the edge of the mountains just below the woods. This encourages ventilation with cooler air that helps the vines during the summer period

Valdobbiadene, in the hamlet of Santo Stefano

 

Vineyard

Tridik

 

Valdobbiadene DOCG

Morphology

Karst limestone, where the mother rock (biancon), over time, has been broken and fragmented by water. In these cracks, formed like capillaries, the soil is rich in organic substances that have been deposited and a space for the growth of deep roots has been created. In this very special soil, the vines searching for nutrients and water can reach down to explore the soil to depths of 4 – 5 metres in the rock.

Soil depth

From 20 – 40 cm, very rich in calcareous minerals that nourish the vines well and give the grapes their very special characteristics, which can then be found well-blended in the wine glass.

Ventilation

Intense due to the location of the vineyard at the edge of the mountains just below the woods. This encourages a continuous exchange of fresh air that helps the vines and the ripening of the grapes in the summer period while limiting the spread of mould and fungus.

Slope
