In 2011 we planted our first
'experimental' vineyard (.1 hector or 1/4 acre) of Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) grapes and realized
our first vintage in 2013. This vineyard is near the house at 400 meters (1300 feet).
In 2016, we prepared land and
made a one hector (2.5 acres) vineyard at the top of the property at about 500 meters (1600
feet), also of Pinot Noir grapes. We have plans to add an additional hector of grapes in the
spring of 2018.
