The harvest 2011 was good, both in terms of quality and quantity and as usual many persons have contributed to the harvest.
Fortunately most of the land is served by a monorail consisting of 3 wagons (1 for driving ad 2 for transportation) which can transport the grapes on the road, avoiding exhausting and dangerous transport on shoulders.
The monorail was installed in the 80′s and it is run by Coop 5 Terre located at Groppo (1 km from Volastra). Our family is founding member of the Coop 5 Terre and every year we confer the majority of our grapes.The wine for our private use is made in our cellar that is a few meters from the B & B and to store the grape must we still use ancient oak and chestnut barrels, providing ideal conditions for the aging process of our wine.
