Producing Vino Libero - our good habit since 2006.
Vino Libero is a project that unites those vineyards that cultivate and produce wine the most natural way possible by trying to reduce as much as possible the chemical processes used for conventional wine-production.
This is why since 2006 - and even before regarding the elimination of the use of herbicides - we have initiated a virtuous way aiming for a natural system of cultivating our grapes and our wine production - trying to discover the true nature of our wine
Our great assets.
Labor in the vineyard aware of tradition:
- use of natural fertilizers authorized for the biological sector;
- NO to herbicides, YES to digging the terrain;
- use of our compost produced and reintegration as fertilizer and inductor for the resistance of our vines;
- biological conversion of our vines and special treatment with micro-organisms to stimulate the self-defense of the plants;
- abatement of the use of copper;
- anti-parasite treatment reduced from the first year of reference by almost 60%;
- grape harvest by hand.
Labor in the winery with the objective of absolutely 0 use of chemicals:
- percentage of SO2 almost always less than 50% respective the legal maximum limit allowed;
- long-term experiments in cooperation with prestigious research centers in order to improve our performance.
In order to decrease the treatment on a basis of a product synthesis: protocol with Gruppo Zero, established in 2011 - after several years of collaboration with Giusto Giovanetti, CCS Aosta.
Regarding biological conversion: Horta (Vitebio Net and biological conversion in collaboration with the University of Piacenza: Prof. Rossi, Prof. Caffi and team).
For composting and the research regarding the inductors of resistance: 1-2 doctoral candidates of the University of Padua, supervised by Prof. Roberto Causin.
- A Vino Libero respecting the environment and those who appreciate it.
- A Good Wine which has resumed character, taste and perfume that had been lost out of sight.
- Compatible and intelligent agriculture. Ever since characteristic of Serafini & Vidotto.
