VINEYARD MANAGEMENT AND VARIETAL DEVELOPMENT


That the quality 'is made in the vineyard' is a concept now treated by many. Only careful management that integrates all the management activity can achieve significant results. Already 'the stage of pruning' can address the qualitative result using the techniques to enable them to increase longevity of vineyard, more and more' systemic diseases are are the causes of die-offs and good winter pruning practices can help to keep the situation under control. Canopy management may become a powerful tool in the hands of the grower to make high quality grapes but only whom have a deep knowledge of the physiological processes that underlie biological processes can adequately address these choices.

It thus becomes essential to work with techniques that allow a variety enhancement to maximize resources and achieve optimal results behind a subsequent conservative vinification.

In particular, can offer advice in various viticolture areas: 

> Soil management
> Management of correct pruning
> Management and optimization of fertilization
> Canopy management to improve the varietal expression 
> Integrated pest management and organic viticolture
> Precision irrigation programs

PRECISION VITICULTURE

With multi spectral remote sensing data interpretation we can create prescription maps  to optimize the manual and mechanized  operations in the vineyard. We can also support the chosen design of the vineyards, the choice of rootstock and detailed water regimes . During harvest, thanks to a detailed view in multi spectral bands of the plots is possible to differentiate the harvest in order to rationalize the operations of wine making.

Quality is made by particulars!

> Prescription maps
> Variable rate interventions
> Precision Irrigation

VINEYARD SETUP


The birth of a great wine should start with the design of the vineyard. This phase should be studied in detail starting from the site, both in terms of soil and climate, adapting different growing techniques  the choice of vineyard materials to the proper clone and rootstock using healthy planting material. At this stage will be possible also design the equipment suitable for high  mechanization levels and innovative irrigation systems to suit all production requirements.

Below the list of major topics :

> Choice of vine planting density
> Choice of materials for the installation of the vineyard
> Choice of rootstock and clone
> Drainage lines project 
> Design irrigation systems
> Planning for difference levels of mechanization
