Alice: Che erba bella! / What good-looking grass!

Ciao a tutti:foto_alice_eraba_a_mano_600x600

Grazie to many of you for taking the time to check out the small producers working well in Proseccoland. Besides making stunning bubbles, Alice uses no chemical in vigna and no additives besides a minimum amount of sulphur dioxide in cantina. I’ll post later about the cantina practices.

Often, if a vineyard looks like a green carpet for your bare feet, you know you’ve got one that has healthy soil free of chemicals. During fioritura*, they use a  shoulder mounted weedwacker; outside of that period, it’s all by hand. Haunch by haunch, the practical and romantic.

fioritura = flowering
decespugliatore spalleggiato =
