As a result of our close contact with our vineyards and intimate relationship with our land, we have developed a profound sensitivity towards the area’s people and plants. This has given us deep insight into both the more subtle phenomena of our viticultural environment and the potential that exists for developing partnerships to preserve our natural heritage. As an example, we have dedicated one vineyard to the creation of a sort of plant library, containing 57 biotypes of Prosecco, 6 of Verdiso, 3 of Bianchetta and 3 of Perera, and we have planted three rootstocks for each variety.
This is also a way to collaborate in the conservation of a precious genetic heritage, which might otherwise disappear. Moreover, we are also involved in the promotion of the work carried out by two botanists at the very top of the Cartizze hill. Their research revealed the presence of no fewer than 116 different varieties of naturally-occurring species of plants and flowers and resulted in the publication of a Herbarium, a unique book in its genre.
