The farm's vineyards dwell in a track left by an ancient tradition dating back to Roman times. Restoring the intense planting system as it was done way before farm tractors were introduced, when people used to go among the rows of vines with donkeys or oxes, has led Ivan to the decision to plant 8500 grape vine strains per hectare and to actually multiply the rows' density by three. The close proximity pushes the plants to compete with one another to search sustenance into the depths of the soil, becoming stronger and stronger and less in need of attentions.
Just one very simple little arch with 6-8 buds is left of the plant after pruning, and it will develop into branches with a single bunch of grapes. The fruits provide a yield of about one to one and a half kilos of grapes per strain, depending on the varieties that are grown there, which are able to coexist in balance and harmony, enclosing all of their habitat's peculiarities.
Late and manual grape harvests lead to the perfect ripening levels of sugars, acidity and polyphenol content, with such a balance to ensure no further processes in the cellar.
