It’s official: next year we, at Bele Casel will set out for a new Organic adventure. Against all past predictions the “Organic bug” (pardon the unintended pun) gnawed at my well know skepticism which, particularly in rainy years, becomes rather haughty.
We know that it will not be an easy trip and that, given our geography, there will be many difficulties, but we are determined to commit ourselves body and soul to this undertaking; in first place because we believe in it and, secondly, because we aim at offering products of ever lower environmental impact.
Furthermore, we have always been faithful to the recycling of all kinds of packaging and materials and to resource recovery. Since the construction this year, of our new cellar, for example, we recover and use all grey waters; we also clean our tanks only with hot water, without using any corrosive chemicals.
The “opening dance” will be held at the Cornuda vineyard (approximately 6.5 hectares = 16 acres), completely dedicated to the production of Asolo DOCG. At this location, this year, we have already eliminated completely the use of herbicides, with very satisfying results. This has reinforced our belief that we are on the right track, particularly when considering that DOCG represents 90% of our production.
I also wish to thank Intravino for helping us search for an agronomist, to whom we are also grateful for the assistance in our new journey.
