«Our grandparents said characteristic that the vineyard wants to see you every day! In fact how right they were... We are in the vineyard every day and watch it in all seasons!

|we apply the techniques of defoliation or even diluting, always aiming to improve the quality of production, often sacrificing a high yield.|
|Summer: All the vineyards are in the final stage of development, we are one step before harvest. It is important at this time, to ensure the protection of health of the vines, preventing or treating early and effectively any disease. The maturity of each variety is different in each vineyard and monitoring should be done every time.
