“The quality of wine is born in the vine”
The castle vineyards snake through the clay and limestone rock-filled soil of the estate.
It is the alliance between the land and the vine that makes the difference: each vine has its own characteristics, requirements and reaction, important to be thoroughly familiar with both the grape and the land to know how to manage.
The analysis of the earth, the choice of the rootstocks and the selection of the clones, as well the pruning back and the careful, skillful handling of the vine throughout its productive cycle, makes it possible to obtain a healthy grape with uniform ripening: the quality of the grapes is at the heart of a good wine.

“The ancient cellar of the castle, with their typical vaulted structures, witness of the early wine making since 14th century have seen the development of this art since then right through to the end of the last century!”
Skilfully restored with full respect for their original architecture, today they host the great casks and barriques for the ageing of the wines of the castle.
