The vineyards in Palazzona di Maggio
The young Federico Perdisa follows the path taken by the progenitor Luigi in the vineyard, from which he inherited his passion for the vine and for the protection of the environment.
It maintains a 360 ° approach, which involves the use of natural and innovative phytosanitary products based on clays, volcanic rocks and diatoms in place of copper.
For maximum respect for nature, it uses biodegradable oils and fats for agricultural machines.
Much more than what the official organic certification requires since the 2019 harvest.
Antagonist insects are used to control mealybugs and other harmful insects in collaboration with the Regional Health Service and the Astra research laboratory in Tebano.
Weeds are eliminated through frequent mechanical tillage and all the main operations in the vineyard carried out manually, starting from winter pruning and harvesting.
The vineyards are of high density, 5500 vines per hectare, and occupy an area of 15,50 hectares with espalier training and spurred cordon pruning according to the Simonit and Sirch method.
