Our growing techniques are inspired by biological and biodynamic criteria, aimed at strengthening accumulation of both water and organic substance. Biodynamics have led Gerardo Giuratrabocchetti to take a scientific approach aimed at respecting plant life, its surrounding environment and the natural intrinsic “vitality” of the soil. This marked vocation for research, emphasis on tradition and experiment has also led to an extremely interesting project: the discovery and cultivation of 40 other grape varieties historically grown here in the terroir. This work in reviving older local germplasm from the Basilicata region has been carried out in collaboration with the Lucanian Agency for Agricultural Development, (A.L.S.I.A.), as well as Research and University institutes.
