Currently for making Gocce di Pietra are used nearly 3ha that produces about 100 hl of wine. Since 1989 in the vineyard we don’t use any fertilizer, any irrigation and neither any weeding.
At the moment, the only thing that we do in the vineyard it’s just a light cut of the grass.
Beause of the strong inclination of the ground with terraces ( 80% inclination), we have to work in the vineyard by hands . The harvest and all the operations are manually effected by specialized personal allows us to intervene on the quality of the grapes and wine in every moment of the production.
Since 2008 we use only natural yeasts selected in the cellar and no enzymes.
