THE PROJECT
In the heart of Asolo, surrounded by a fairytale landscape underneath the 16th-Century Villa De Mattia, there is an ancient vineyard which is now undergoing a wide recovery project.
A multidisciplinary team, comprising a historian, a landscape architect as well as a squad of oenologists belonging to the C.R.E.A. of Conegliano, is trying, since July 2017, to bring this “lost garden” back to its original splendour.

STATE OF THE ART
The first studies have brought to the complete cleansing of the area, with the exception of healthy plants (which will be of fundamental importance in the vineyard’s new set-up).
The project has been officially unveiled to the press during an event held in Asolo in early October 2017; in it, after a series of speeches by the members of the team, everyone had the opportunity to visit and walk through the vineyard.
Currently, a comparison between the biotypes found in the vineyard and those available at the C.R.E.A. is underway: its goal is to establish a correspondence between them or, on the contrary, to see if there is an even higher degree of biodiversity. A further analysis of the ground will also help to ascertain its influence on plants’ longevity, each of which has already been marked and identified.
