Principi di Porcía
The Azienda Agricola Principi di Porcía, located in the Friuli Grave and Lison-Pramaggiore DOC zones, has for centuries now utilised a diverse array of mutually-complementary crops, along the traditional agricultural model, namely corn, soy, barley, silage, walnuts, poplars, wine, and milk. Such an approach ensures the consumer a product that is fundamentally ethical, healthy, safe, and at the same time of good value, all in a context of eco-sustainability. All of this is made possible through a completely transparent internal production cycle: the cows are fed with the silage and grains in order to keep them in consistent good health and to keep levels of milk yield high. Their organic waste, rich in nitrogen, phosphorous dioxide, and potassium, is an outstanding mechanism for soil fertility, which therefore has no need of massive applications of chemicals, nor of herbicides or pesticides. Crop diversification and rotation greatly reduce the need to work the soil, thus enabling better control and reduced use of chemical herbicides. Sustained soil fertility, therefore, ensures environmentally low-impact operations, including those of course in the vineyards as well.
