Organic Fertilizers at Il Poggione


#1: Favino field

The “Favino” field bean, which was sowed to naturally fertilize the vineyard with organic substances and nitrogen present in its roots, has grown a lot and is ready to be buried.

#2: Favino flowers

We know this by the vegetative state (see photo #1) and by the presence of flowers (see photo #2) that indicate the optimal moment to proceed with burying the beans.


The Favino is first crumbled with a machine (see video above). Afterwards, we bury it in the soil (see video below) so it can release the organic substances into the vineyards.
