Organic certification

Based on the conviction that a wine’s quality is determined in the vineyard, Speri Viticoltori has committed itself over the years to preserving and promoting the fertility of the land while growing exclusively local grapes and preventing some historic varietals from extinction.
Also, in the hillside vineyards they have maintained the “marogne”, the historic stone walls, in order to preserve the balance of the land.
After many years of sustainable agriculture from the 2015 vintage obtains organic certification. The ultimate goal is getting as close as possible to a naturally balanced agricultural ecosystem by implementing practices that combine a knowledge of ecology, plant physiology, biochemistry and insect behavior. Examples are leaving permanent grass over the entire vineyard area (thus ensuring the presence of organic substances), and composting the residues from pruning and vinification, that restores part of its by-products into the environment. Another important practice is to control the main insect that does harm to the vines, the European grapevine moth, by means of the modern technique of sexual confusion.
