NEWS FROM THE THE VINEYARDS

This year in the Veneto, in the first few weeks of March, the vines had already begun to “weep”, the phenomenon that precedes bud-break by about twenty days, as the vegetation’s development was decidedly more advanced compared to 2013. The abundant rainfall in the months of January and February and the high temperatures in fact woke the vines from their winter lethargy earlier than usual.

We are currently finishing pruning and tying the shoots on wires, operations that allow the vines to produce better fruit and limit the grape yield.

These will be followed by the operations of fertilizing, especially using nitrogen in poor soils, and tilling between the vine rows in order to remove weeds and allow the soil to become oxygenated, as well as hydrated by the first rain showers that fall in the next few months.
