NATURAL FERTILISATION AND GREEN MANURE
LET’S FEED THEM ORGANICALLY
Our grapevines are vegetarian and we feed them a strictly natural and organic diet 🙂
This is how we want them, strictly vegetarian. The vines in the Firriato Estate are fed organic substances only. Nature feeding nature, going seamlessly from soil to soil. The field beans sown a few months ago have become the exclusive nourishment of our vines. This certified organic “diet” enhances plant health and unconditional respect for our Earth.
Healthy grapevines, beautiful by nature
The green manure is a cultural practice that fascinates us. We have sown field bean, barley and vetch in alternating rows because we grow local plants only. We are in spring and it’s time to start shredding these plants that are so rich in valuable natural nutrients for the grapevines that are beginning to sprout. The passage of the estate heroes is followed by the plow stirring the soil where these plants grow, completing this ancient and sustainable process of natural fertilisation of the earth, our mother.
To Firriato, the soil is its most valuable CAPITAL, one to be preserved and handed down to future generations.
It’s not just sustainability; it’s not just organic farming. It is a genuine commitment, made on measurements and calculations with one goal in mind: that after us, our children will inherit this land and we need to pass it on as we found it: fertile, alive.
Thanks to precision viticulture and to green manure, Firriato adds no chemical fertilisers to the soil.
