organic wines on the hills of Pressano
Our years of experience in the vineyards led to the decision to eliminate the use of all synthetic chemicals. We set in place the conversion to organic farming for all of our vineyards and recently we started using the principles of biodynamics. The deep knowledge of our territory and the daily attention for our vineyards allows us to harvest healthy grapes, thus limiting as much as possible the intervention on the wine in the cellar.
The production of wine is accompanied by a limited production of intense and pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil, coming from centuries-old olive trees in the Valle dei Laghi, just north of Lake Garda.
Valle dei Laghi
The valley is partly crossed by the Sarca river which originates on the Adamello Brenta glaciers and in just 78km it enters Lake Garda. Together with the glaciers that covered the whole Trentino region, it contributed to shaping this area, which today has a Mediterranean climate. The soil has a morainic origin with a rich content of silt and clay.
Ora del Garda – the wind coming from the lake – is a breeze that blows on time, mitigating temperatures and temperature range and thus contributing to creating an ideal environment for the olive tree and other Mediterranean species.
The Prabi vineyard where we cultivate Manzoni bianco is characterized by a subsoil with a high proportion of sand of alluvial origin.
In the Pivier vineyard where our Merlot and Cabernet Franc grow, the soil is rich in clay and silt.
