Vineyard renewal is not undertaken lightly. It involves soil testing; research into appropriate clones, rootstocks, spacing, and trellis; removing old vines and infrastructure; soil amendments as needed; deep ripping to loosen the soil; and -- naturally -- a wheelbarrow of projections and documents for our bankers.
Do not be alarmed, Villa Ragazzi fans! We continue to grow and bottle the usual small amounts of prized Sangiovese. Please let us know if you want a few bottles for your holiday entertaining by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
