It's time to tie the shoots in the vineyards.
A lot of gentleness is needed working with the vines to avoid the break of the shoots!
This is an old vineyard od Corvina planted in 1997.

➡️Reposted from @ethicawines😊🥂 Today we want to share with you a story of another incredible woman: Giovanna Tantini!

It was more than 20 years ago that Giovanna Tantini decided to turn her back on a career in law and return to her family’s farm in Verona province. She was supposed to follow in the footsteps of her father, a well-known attorney at the time. But instead, she chose to “return to the land,” grow grapes, and “show the world that Bardolino and Chiaretto weren’t just wines to drink young. I wanted to show how [the appellations] could make for long-lived wines with complexity,” she recalls.

At the time, no one believed that it was possible. And other producers were hardly interested in the ideas of a young woman who dreamed of producing world-class wines in an appellation where inexpensive, over-cropped, anonymous wines were the status quo. Not only did Giovanna set out to study grape farming and winemaking with some of the leading experts at the time, but “I learned how to grow grapes and make wine by working in the vineyards and driving a tractor” she says.

She also became an activist and organizer who encouraged farmers to start making wine with their own grapes instead of selling them to large cooperatives. She was among the first to do green harvests and focus on canopy management there. “Vineyard management was the key to making great, age-worthy wines,” she told us.

It was no easy task to teach an old dog new tricks, as the saying goes. But today, Bardolino and Chiaretto are known throughout the world as some of Italy’s best fine wines.

As part of our ongoing International Women’s month series, we honor Giovanni Tantini for her groundbreaking role as woman winemaker and a viticultural iconoclast who reshaped an entire generation of growers and producers in her appellation.

Thank you @ethicawines

Bardolino was my first love. The elenagce and character of this wine made me decide to try to produce it on my own, 20 years ago. And the love story goes on.

These are the people who make the wine, together with me.

Some days ago my agronomist Roberto Abate came to visit me.
I've known Roberto since 20 years and together with the team we build the project of my wine day by day

This is me together with the gorgeous American wine writer Katherine Cole last year in Bardolino. Katherine will lead 2 Masterclasses for the American sommeliers about the Chiaretto di Bardolino. I will have the pleasure to take part to these masterclasses on the 23th and 24thbof February, presenting my Chiaretto di Bardolino 2019! 🥂🌸

My distributor in the USA is @ethicawines. As you can see the bottle has a screw cup cork 😉

Sono sempre felice che veniate a trovarmi in cantina. Credo che sia il modo più bello per poter conoscere e capire il mio vino.
È importante però che prima di arrivare mi avvisiate! Io arriverò velocissimamente!

This is one of the most important tasting of the year: the one with my consultants Attilio Pagni and Laura Zuddas, in which we taste the new vintages of Chiaretto and Custoza, comparing them with some later vintages.
My Bardolino will need one more year of maturation to get ready for the blend.
Following the path of my wine is really beautiful and fascinating!
