Fidora

08.11.17

In 1974 Guido Fidora decided to convert the family to organic agriculture, eliminating the use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. To the family, being organic doesn’t only mean to go back to some “good old principles”, it means to move a step forward in terms of quality, health, sustainability and environmental responsibility. As one of Veneto's first and foremost organic producers, the family is committed to improving production methods, producing top quality wines and now using biodynamic farming methods. Their two main concepts for the vineyards are the avoidance of chemicals and the development of biodiversity. By nourishing the land and treating it with respect, it will produce its finest fruits. Organic wines are healthier than those made from conventionally grown grapes. They are made with more care, following practices that protect both the environment and the people, who work in the production process.

Now running the vineyard is Emilio Fidora, he believes that the conversion to biodynamics has allowed the wines to be more expressive and true representations of the land. Biodynamic growing is very difficult with the vine because it's a perennial plant. As the vine is always there, you have to find ways to give and renew the soil with the plant always being there. 

As a way to encourage biodiversity, they use tree-lined banks, meadows, hedges, copses, and ponds: habitats that characterise the farm and become a welcome home to wildlife.  This is why hares, foxes, pheasants, ducks, herons, boars and many other species are the true inhabitants of the estates.

Also growing things like chamomile, stinging nettles, yarrow and dandelion throughout the year and burying them in the soil encourages the natural circle of growth of plants.
