Pictures From Masseria Li Veli


The Masseria Liveli Winery

This morning I received images from Alessia Nebuloni of Masseria Liveli.  I have permission to post these images on my blog.

Part of the Estate

The estate has been fully renovated.

Settonce Vineyard

The vines are planted in a settonce pattern.  The hexagonal pattern maximizes soil exposure for the roots, maximized exposure to the sun, and eases air circulation.

An Old Alberello Trained Vine

The Alberello or Little Tree method of pruning keeps vines close to the ground. This method is popular in Southern Italy where there is little rain and high heat. It helps the vine conserve water.

Younger Vines

The vines are pruned to have three, two-bud spurs.

Harvest

The grapes are harvested by hand and carried in small containers.

Barrique Cellar

The Barrique cellar has been updated and is fully air-conditioned. There is room for approximately 400 barrels.
