We observe, analyse and experiment, always seeking the best possible solution
What does the word “quality” really mean?
We see it as the search for a condition of harmony, to be achieved at all levels and between every element involved in our daily environment: plants, flora, fauna, insects, man, soil and microflora are all essential factors, interconnected in a complex project of task sharing that has to be studied, understood, respected and assisted in order to achieve the perfect balance, which is the fulcrum of any result associated with the concept of “quality”.
The basis of everything is the attentive and silent observation of what happens in our vineyards. Then comes analysis. We have no absolute certainties. We prefer to always consider the possibility that there might be a better solution in every choice we make. Frequently asking ourselves questions and doubting even the simplest things has allowed us to grow and better understand our role. We believe in carefully assessing the numerous factors that determine a condition. This is the only way we can be sure that we are improving and not neglecting important aspects of our work.
Attention to every detail has always inspired our work. In 2013 we chose to push further forward and take an organic approach to managing our vineyards. This move led us to the attainment of organic certification, which is crucial with a view to the future. Our predecessors have left us the gift of a remarkable territory and an immense heritage of farming culture. It is our duty to care for, protect and, if possible, improve this heritage in order to pass it on to future generations with even greater awareness and responsibility than those we received.
Tradition and innovation are two sides of the same coin. We consider ourselves to be “Progressive”, explorers of an environment that is constantly evolving, climatically, cognitively, technically and even socio-culturally.
We don’t want to be guardians of a time that no longer exists, nor do we want to be champions of a partial awareness of things. Awareness of what we have at our disposal grows vintage after vintage and the variables, being precisely that, vary over time. It is our duty to take this into consideration and to reflect, not on how to keep things exactly the way they are, but on how to interpret and manage the variables that we encounter along the way, based on our experience. Respecting tradition doesn’t mean using the same tools and the same rules for ever (however romantic it might seem). It means preserving, in both mind and spirit, the desire to understand and improve; a good tradition requires the ability to adapt, to avoid losing the value of past experience, without the fear of making mistakes. Tradition is expressed in people’ s passion, not in the techniques they use.
