Terre di Ger in the Dolomites

Our new, fully organic vineyards are taking shape in Feltre, in the Dolomites. After the Pinot Noir vineyard, we are now completing our farm with a new Solaris vineyard, the most famous PIWI variety suitable for mountain climate. Solaris kissed by the sun isPIWI International’s slogan. On San Fermo hill, in the village of Villaga, the sun shines and warms the whole farm’s 4 ha since early morning.

Solaris vines are vigorous, strong, and suitable to mountain climate. The vineyard planting layout is 2,80X1,20 m. The wine obtained from this grape variety is characterized by refined flower and fruit scent, tropical fruit and citrus aromas enriched by a pleasant acidity. 

We picked Solaris grape variety in order to complete our selection of resistant grape varieties ranging from white grape Bronner, Sauvigner Gris, Soreli, Sauvignon Kretos and  Sauvignon Rythos to red grape Merlot Khorus and Merlot Kanthus, Cabernet Eidos and Cabernet Prior.

Pinot Noir from the Dolomites is the most elegant and noble wine which could not be missing from our wine farm.  It is as if the sun kissing Solaris grapes went through Pinot Noir’s colour, whose clearnes is the most distinctive feature. The wine’s aromas include vegetable scents, mint and dill, red fruits such as cherry and strawberry. 

Step by step we will be telling you about flowering, ripening and harvest.

From good care for the vineyards a good wine is born: grapevine pruning at Terre di Ger’s

Grapevine pruning is the most ‘engaging’ phase in the grapevine’s life cycle, when both past experience and creativity are combined together. 

The selection of vine shoots and spurs for the coming year, the training system, the amount of production and the expected grape quality…. this is the time of the year when the most important decisions must be taken.

These are cold and short days, but very busy days indeed. Life is starting again from here, after a few months of rest during which the vineyard has restored itself. This process is known as “agostamento”, a perpetual and constant becoming: spurs lignify and become shoots, shoots will give birth to new buds which in turn will become fruitful sprouts and so on.

Grapevine-pruning ends right before the so called weeping of the vine. It is as if grapevines are urging time now. That is why pruning represents the most important and evocative time of the year. 

Each grapevine variety and each wineyard have their own distinctive traits. In our farm, the most used training system is Guyot (the double Guyot, typical in the Friuli area). The most vigorous grapevines are trained after the Sylvoz system, the classical permanent cordon with renewed arches.
