The driving system is made in Trellis, VSP (Vertical Shoot Positioning).
The orientation of the rows is North-South. The spacing between rows is 1.80 meters. The plants are spaced 1.00 meters apart in a row.
The plantation density is 5,500 vines per hectare.
Pruning is done in the double Guyot system and also in cordons with pitons. With a number of buds (load) that ranges from 40,000 to 60,000 per hectare, aiming at low yields to ensure optimal quality and concentration of all our varietals.
The management of the canopy is completed with the adequate positioning of the shoots, avoiding piling up, shading of clusters, and overexposure to sunlight. It is canopy management or protective viticulture, given the conditions of great heliophany and Ultra Violet radiation.
After pruning, the yield is still controlled by thinning successive shoots in the vegetative period of the vine. Lastly, in some vintages, we can also finish this yield control and ensure the balance of each plant by thinning the bunches. (crop in green)
The health of the vineyards is very good due to the low rainfall and moderate and persistent winds. Few phytosanitary treatments are carried out, around three preventive applications, mainly using sulfur and copper (allowed for organic production) to control pests: Powdery mildew and Peronóspera.
The harvest is done manually during the months of March and April in small plastic boxes of 12 Kg.
