In 2019 Fattoria di Petrognano decided to welcome applied
research projects within the company. The goal is to utilise the
structure of the vineyards to generate new knowledge and interact
with other entities in the wine supply chain.
The aim is to look to the future without forgetting what was
learned in the past, and promote new awareness on how to
manage the resources available.
In this vein, through collaborating with various partners ranging
from the University of Florence to precision and sustainable
agricultural companies, a number of innovative projects are
underway relating to vineyard management using the Animavitis®
philosophy: viticulture 5.0, the use of effective micro-organisms
and biodynamic preparations in soils, and studies on the
optimisation of estate practice to maximise the expression of
the raw material.
