“The most beautiful garden of vines in Europe”
J.W. Von Goethe
“Faedo is a sort of watershed in the history of Trentino. One of those places with ancient perfumes, yearning for those who once wanted to control the passage between north and south”
The long solar irradiation of the vineyards, the type of terrain and Ora del Garda, which ensures a mild ventilation during hot summer days, give this place an extraordinary uniqueness and make it extraordinarily suited to viticulture.
Although the appearance looks like that of a classic conoid, the current morphology of the area is not due exclusively to alluvial action but also to the landslide process that originated in the interglacial period. Landslide accumulations which occurred in successive periods were then conveyed and deposited further downstream by Rio Faedo until modelling the current conoid. And so we find a basal area consisting of mixed, mainly dolomitic debris on a silty substratum, with a median part characterised instead by soils that evolve from red siltstones and the highest part composed mainly of dolomite and sandstone.
Most of our Classics are born in Faedo: from Nosiola to Traminer, from Müller to Pinot Noir, from Sauvignon to Vin dei Molini and also our two most important reserves: Bianco Faye and Rosso Faye.
“Transforming Nature, it is nothing other than making the elements move in a circle”
Arnaldo da Villanova
Respect and enhancement of the natural fertility of the land have become the essential principles over time. Rigorous rules and sustainable methods calling for the total elimination of herbicides, acarides and synthetic pesticides govern management of the countryside and guarantee the natural fertility of the earth and the surrounding environment.
Choice of the Simonit & Sirch pruning method has been fundamental. Through pruning, following and going along with the natural attitude of the vine to branch is the key to ensuring a long and healthy life.
