At Tenuta Parco dei Monaci (Monks Park Estate) seasons are very important.


When Spring comes in, the rate wakes up and leaves his lair, the lesser kestrels is back from Africa, the vineyard opens the buds and sprouts fast. The vine grower selects and binds the young shoots.


Summer, the time of maximum effort: after bud selection, in July is time for grape selection and in August for basal leaf removal. All activities carried out by hand.


At the beginning of autumn the harvest, for the rest of the season the vine grower will be in the cellar. Tenuta Parco dei Monaci vineyard is soon cloaked in red, then the leaves fall leaving the shoots uncombed.


All is quiet, the animals of the Matera Moors Park are dormant or migrate further south. You can only spot the hungry fox hunting. Tenuta Parco dei Monaci vine grower has pruned the plants by hand, one by one. He tied the cords uphill with sparse and short spurs, and now he can rest.
