Vad du kommer att göra

You will immerse yourself into the natural wonder of an organic vineyard. We will tour along grape rows, where you will grasp how the plant grows and interacts with the environment. In particular, you will understand the grapevine vital sap flow: how to identify and preserve it. We will see surrounding natural plants and flowers and you will check how important it is to provide a natural balance, preventing the spreading of plant diseases. There are also honeybees in the property, and plenty of other insects. You will also see different types of birds (very important to control insects) and wild animals (deers, hares). Later on, you will step into the shoes of a winegrower. You will be pruning, selecting buds, mowing, monitoring insects, watering, tying the vine shoots, etc., according to the timing of the season. Finally, you will experience the joy to focus on simple actions and disconnect yourself from the city routine. At any time, you can stop, ask, look, take a picture, or simply breath fresh air. You decide at what pace you would like to go!
Other things to note: Vineyard is organic and activity will take place outside and may involve risks, including but not limited to: insect bites, plant stings, sun burning, dehydration, accidental falls. Please be careful and be prepared: this is NATURE! Please tell me in advance of any particular needs. Thank you and enjoy!

I am an agronomist and a farmer with professional education and background field experience in Italy, Jordan, Sudan, Zambia, Australia, Belize, Greece, France and USA.
My work is to develop and implement innovative, environmental friendly agricultural production systems using a tailor-made mix of different techniques, including agro-forestry, no-till farming, cover crop rotations, permaculture. My goal is to promote biodiversity in agro-ecological systems and to increase their sustainability at three levels: economy for the farmer, health for the consumer, resource use efficiency for the environment.
Since 2017, I manage a small organic vineyard in the Beric Hills, few km south of Vicenza, my hometown. Here, surrounded by the woods, plenty of animals, birds and insects interact with plants, soil and weather to produce amazing wines.

Var ni kommer att vara

We will stay in the vineyard, outdoor in the open-air. It is a private property, not far from Monte Berico, Vicenza. It is quite a wild area, with no buildings and no toilets. We will walk in the fields and we will be subject to weather conditions: wind, sun, ranging temperatures and some insects. In case of heavy rains or adverse weather conditions, we might cancel and postpone the experience.

Berardo was a great host, explaining the intricacies of managing and growing an organic vineyard in a way that was easy for us to understand. Don’t miss out on this experience.

Il vigneto di Berardo è in una posizione unica, sui colli Berici, rivolto al sole e con un gran panorama attorno. Berardo dimostra tutta la sua professionalitá, organizzando al meglio il lavoro di tutti e approfondendo alcuni aspetti tecnici del suo lavoro. A pranzo ha preparato un pic nik davvero eccezionale, con prodotti locali della sua famiglia, tutti a km zero! Riesce inoltre a creare un'atmosfera multiculturale, con la presenza di molti amici americani. A really interesting day!!

This is a once in a lifetime experience... an experience that only few will ever have the privilege to partake. It was fascinating to see how they manage the natural environment to produce healthy, organic grapes that are amazing right off the vine. It’s no wonder the wine is such great quality when you start with hand selected, perfectly grown grapes in a true natural setting. This is not a spectator sport... you will get to participate in harvesting the grapes in the traditional Italian way along with the sun and insects, but it wouldn’t be authentic any other way. Just go! You’ll be happy you spent a day like this.
