The company vineyards are in the municipality of Fumane, in the Valpolicella Classica area, which is particularly suited to vine growing. The vineyards extend both along the plain and in the hills, and the vines are grown applying the traditional Verona pergola system.
Company's philosophy is to promote the area it has been in since 1808 at best, therefore the main grape varieties grown are autochthonous to Valpolicella: Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and Dindarella.
The Boscaini family has been running its vineyards carefully respecting the environment because always firmly convinced that top quality wines can only be obtained from top quality grapes; this is why all the processes are carried out by hand, from pruning to tying the shoots still using the traditional "strope" (a type of string made from thin, fine willow branches), from stripping to grape picking by hand.
Great consideration is also given to the application of numerous technical systems with integrated defences that limit almost all anti-parasite treatments and optimise the use of water resources in full respect of the environment. Paolo Boscaini, in fact, was the first person in Fumane to apply drip irrigation to his vineyards.
Some methods used, for example working the soil to combat weeds without using weedkillers, sexual confusion for containing moths to prevent the use of insecticides, and applying copper- and sulphur-based products to defend against fungal infection, contribute to maintaining biodiversity in the vineyard.
Fully respecting the origins and traditions of the Boscaini family, Azienda Agricola Sala cultivates ciliegeti
(cherry orchards) and oliveti
(olive groves) on its own hilly land, which is positioned in the Valpolicella Classica area in Fumane.
