Biodiversity Protection

We only cultivate 50 % of the 95 hectares that belong to our estate in order to safeguard the autochthonous biodiversity, both the fauna and flora. We allow our natural woods to grow around the vineyards for the repopulation of useful insects for the biological cycle of the grapes and the passage of wild animals.

We protect the swallows that have been nesting in our cellar for over 46 years. Every year, they return on the last ten days of March and leave the first week of September. We collaborate with LIPU ( Italian Bird Protection League) to improve the agricultural ecosystem of our estate and to monitor the ornithic fauna that lives there. We have created a network of foot and cycle paths that cross our estate to enjoy the “biodiversity oases” as identified by LIPU’s ornithological and botanical experts.
