Simonite & Sirch method

The Simonit & Sirch method, developed in the 1980s, is named after the winegrowing experts Marco Simonit and Pierpaolo Sirch from Friuli(Italy). The innovative pruning technique aims to improve the health and longevity of vines. The focus is on maintaining the vitality and natural resilience of the vines. This is why it is also known as "gentle pruning" or "healthy pruning".

Simonit&Sirch-Methode - Marco Simonit und Pierpaolo Sirch

High quality of old vines

The method is based on very old experiences that have been adapted to the requirements of modern viticulture. The focus is on the health of the vine with a significant extension of the life cycle to at least 50 years, i.e. twice the average age today. This means that the philosophy of high quality from old vines, which was already considered obsolete in some cases, is once again gaining importance.
