Nowadays San Silvestro can rely on many grape-growers and their important role. Paolo Sartirano, owner of the company together with his cousin Guido, explains "This company is base on our family tradition and can be described ad Piedmontese model. Actually, in Piedmont many wine cellars based their activity and their production on a strict grape selection, always looking for the best wine areas and tightly connecting with the local grape-growers throught long-term contracts that could last decades. San Silvestro embraces this philosophy, believing that excellence and transparency always make the difference".
The technical staff, enologists and agronomist, cooperate with the grape-growers all year long. Together, they schedule the works in the vineyards, the treatments, the correct timing according to weather trend, the soil condition and the expected quality. The partnership is based on a great trust, cultivated year by year through respect and consistency.
Some cooperations last since many yaers. Paolo Sartirano remembers when, as he was a child, used to visit grape-growers with his father Giovanni and his uncle Pietro.
Here we introduce you some of the actual grape-growers we work with, full of proud.
Livio owns almost 4 hectares in the suburb Prabrassolo, in Monchiero village. He is the newest partner in San Silvestro. In 2015 we signed a long-term contract and we started the trenching to prepare the soil for the future vineyards. We planted some barbera and nebbiolo vines, that are now slowly grwing up. In three years we will start collect some fruits! So excited!
