The vineyards

Producing high quality wines is Marco Capra’s first aim, and in order to achieve it, his personal commitment and work begin in the vineyard: “The vineyards are our most important capital and it is our job to take care of them and work them in the most natural and eco-compatible way possible”. Piedmont is renowned for its typical, richly traditional grape varieties – Nascetta, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera and Moscato.

We produce mainly Piedmont’s autochthonous wines, to enjoy, in their flavour, all the characteristics linked with the land. These vineyards have been chosen within the areas best suited to the cultivation of the single grape varieties. Meticulous care and attention are given to the vines, in the respect of agriculture techniques that allow to keep the yield under control. Defensive treatments are carried out prioritising products with a low environmental impact.

The beginning of the harvest is decided by observing the degree of ripeness of the grapes, their sugar and acid contents and their development over time on the basis of the atmospheric conditions. The harvest usually starts at the end of August, with the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes used to produce sparkling wines, whereas Moscato, Chardonnay and Nascetta grapes are harvested at the beginning of September. Dolcetto and Barbera grapes are harvested between the end of September and the beginning of October followed, in mid October, by Nebbiolo grapes The grapes are all harvested by hand, into small perforated crates. All the phonological phases and the work in the vineyard are supervised by the agronomist Angelo Cortese.
