Simonit & Sirch take the first Festival of the Pruner to Franciacorta, dedicated to experts and more

The creators of the most used method in the world are organizing an authentic pruning contest on March 9th in Erbusco, in the vineyards of Bellavista

The previews season is knocking at the door, and the events in this period dedicated totally to the wine world, its producers and enthusiasts have officially begun.This year there will be a new entry, celebrating a part of the wine production process that is still behind the scenes: pruning. Simonit & Sirch, the pruning method created by Marco Simonit and Pierpaolo Sirch, who began in Friuli Venezia Giulia, and today have become the star players in more than 130 top level wine cellars in Italy and around the world, have organized the First Italian Festival of Pruners, to take place on March 9th in Erbusco, in Franciacorta, in the vineyards of Bellavista, one of the leading companies in the territory, the first to adopt the revolutionary pruning method, now practiced in all the wine companies of the Terra Moretti Group. The main attraction at the Festival, of course, will be the practical know-how on the subject of pruning vines, and then, on mastering the method, the Pruning Contest, the competition open to anyone who wants to test their qualities as a winemaker, in individual and team contests. The day will be open to everyone - contestants, guided by the speaker Federico Quaranta, the voice of the Decanter wine-themed radio program, on Radio 2, and now also on Linea Verde, on the TV channel Rai 1, also wine lovers, enthusiasts and families with children are welcome to the event. There will be music, theme stands as well as a series of activities related to the agricultural world, including workshops with artisans, stands to taste Franciacorta wines and food, and the “Wannabe a pruning guy” for the little ones, where each child chooses a grape vine shoot and plants it, marking it with his name and the date, thus giving life to a “symbolic vineyard”, a good omen for the future.
The main attraction, as mentioned, is to pass on and protect the pruning method the two Italians have created, in recognizing the value that pruning has for each winemaker, considered one of the most difficult tasks on which the success or not, of a good wine may depend. The value of this has earned them the spread of the Simonit & Sirch method among the top wine brands in the world, from Bordeaux (names such as Château d’Yquem, Château Latour, Château Haut Bailly), to Champagne (Moët & Chandon and Louis Roederer), the Napa Valley (Chimney Rock, Silver Oak, Domain Chandon, among others), the Sonoma Valley (Rochioli), Chile (Emiliana of the Concha y Toro Group and Almaviva of Mouton Rothschild), Argentina (Chandon and Terrazza de Los Andes), Australia (names like Montalto Vineyard or Stonier Wines, for example) and South Africa (wine cellars like Ruper, Bottega Family, Kanonkop).
