Pantelleria’s Alberello Vine, Cultural Heritage of Humanity

 

In Pantelleria, the traditional practice of vite ad alberello is passed down through generations of vintners and farmers. About 5,000 residents own a plot of land, which they cultivate using sustainable methods. The technique consists of several phases.  First, the ground is prepared by leveling the soil and digging a hollow to plant the vine. Then the main stem of the vine is carefully pruned to produce six branches, forming a bush with a radial arrangement. The hollow is constantly reshaped to ensure the plant is growing in the right microclimate. And finally, the grapes are hand-harvested at the end of July.
