Everything you can imagine,
nature has already created it.

About us

Vitenova Vine Wellness is a consulting company for wineries of the agronomy sector. It has always operated with the aim of developing tailored solutions for every single company, with a very scrupulous search path. Analysis concerning this sector and in specialized laboratories lead to the identification of the best strategy to guarantee the highest quality of production.
 
The wineries that apply to Vitenova have understood the need of preserving and building their heritage, made up of vines and land, working on the current and future production and hoping to obtain the most satisfactory results in terms of quality.
 
Vitenova, thanks to the activated collaboration with the leading laboratories and the main reference research centres in Italy and abroad – University of Udine, Edmund Mach Foundation, Megalab –performs agronomic analyses to determine fundamental parameters.
The information you can extract from the analytical activity, is aimed to develop actions that lead you to the highest levels of production, achieving excellent performance. These final targets are the result of a process that aims to identify the precise characteristics of the ground, the plants and the ecosystem, which is to say the companys terroir, to create parameters of integration and equipoise.
 
When every element of an ecosystem is in equipoise, even if dynamic by nature, you obtain astate of harmony, which affects the wellbeing of a plant and so consequently the quality of its production.

What we do

Organic Fertility of the land

Organic Fertility of the land

The land, including the vineyards is the most important heritage of a winery and for this reason it should be guaranteed and preserved. The analyses of the land, which are repeated regularly, have to identify life annuity to keep production constant at the highest possible levels.

Monitoring biodiversity

Monitoring biodiversity

Monitoring biodiversity, and the consequence of the actions taken into consideration, necessary to achieve a natural balance, have a direct result on the quality of the grape, reduction of chemical interventions, control of harmful insects and infections, the conservation of the natural countryside and, not less important, reduction costs.

Evaluation of the environmental impact on the vineyard

Evaluation of the environmental impact on the vineyard

The rating of the environmental impact of a vineyard, through the analysis of the elements that make up the ecosystem, allows us to stabilize concrete strategies to reduce the impact caused by business activity. In this way, the winery is not only responsible for the environment, but it guarantees high standard continuity of production.
