Respect to the land is a concrete action here, they use only the products allowed in organic agriculture to fight against the diseases.
The arrangement of the vineyard is ‘Giropoggio’ and they do not work deep soil before planting the plants, and the vineyards are total grassing of the row in order to reduce the erosion of surface waters. Also, for ten years Family Saffirio use light tractors to avoid impact on the soil and this allows the soil to breathe and they see only organic fertilizers.
The cellar was designed to be integrated into the rural landscape and to reduce the heat exchange with the outside. The isolation was done using natural cork.
