Production orientation

The farm is about 230 hectares in total, on which vineyards (20 Ha) alternate with woods, lawns and pastures. The fields, once used for alpine pasture, have been turned into vineyards since 2000, using the latest wine growing technologies and trying to exploit as much as possible the natural beauty of the territory. Much attention has also been paid to the selection of young vines which come from the best nurseries of Europe, aiming to produce fine wines with a well defined character. Under the vegetal layer of the ground we find another layer made of slimy-clayey sand, compact morainic rich in gravel and stone elements. There are various plots of land with different morphologic characteristics, disposition and microclimate. The landscape morphology alternates sloping areas covered in woods, to flatter surfaces, partially terraced, often supported by dry walls on the valley side. It is important to underline the particular attention given by the Borgo dei Posseri farm to the use of phytosanitary products in combination with biological treatments and the mechanical processing of the clearing of the ground at the foot of the plant (no herbicides are used). The productive orientation is to enhance the environmental variability (morphology, exposure, disposition, origins and characteristics of the grounds) combining vine and environment in order to produce wines with a marked personality and uniqueness. The vines grown with the espalier system and Guyot pruning fit in this frame. The selected vines are: Mueller Thurgau, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Gewurztraminer and other varieties for experimental purposes. In particular, the climate conditions of the site allow the white grape vines to express extremely valuable levels of finesse and persistence.
