At Palazzo Tronconi Winery Restaurant, we are delighted to be exhibiting a photographic exhibition by local photographer Marco Reali.

Through the lens, Marco explores key events on our vineyard, capturing scenes that catalogue stages that vines go through throughout the year. From the first buds in spring to veraison when the grapes start to change colour. Glorious harvest then autumnal colours to leafless vines in the winter. Images of biodynamic farming are evocative of simple farming techniques of days gone by. Sweeping rural landscapes and portraits of the winemaker.

Veraison and Harvesting Exciting Times at Palazzo Tronconi Vineyard

The long days and nights of pruning, training, thinning as well as fulfilling our biodynamic promise to our land all becomes worthwhile.

These are exciting times in our vineyard, veraison is a French term that means the beginning of ripening, our red grapes begin to change colour from green to a deep purple and our white grapes change from green to golden globes of amber. Veraison signals the grape berries to become much more resistant to many grape diseases - a huge relief for us especially after losing a percentage of our crop this year to the worst frosts we have encountered Europe. The changing colour is also associated with the aroma change, and this in turn can attract grape eating pests such as the wild pigs who feasted on our grapes a couple of years ago! 

 

Most importantly veraision is the final stage in the growing process and signals that we have grapes to harvest and to make wine with! So all good. 

The long days and nights of pruning, training, thinning as well as fulfilling our biodynamic promise to our land all becomes worthwhile. 

So onto harvest, we have started taking juice samples from the grapes to analyse to see how the grapes are ripening and harvest of Malvasia Puntinata and Trebbiano could take place within two weeks. Friends families and some of our past guests at Palazzo Tronconi Hotel are invited back to to help with harvest. Sounds romantic but it's intense, hard work, all our grapes are handpicked and need to be picked quickly once they are fully ripe. 

It's a labour of love but so far it's been worth the blood sweat and tears! 

 

See you soon!
