Predappio is a small village in the heart of the Emilia Romagna, nestled between the Appennini mountains and the Adriatic sea. Predappio valley is authentic, with a lot of vineyards and few houses, where ancient jobs are still preserved and the rhythms of life still follow the seasons. In the lower part of the valley the mountains pick became rolling hills, that are historically vocated for viticuluture. The climate is influenced by the mountains and the sea and it is characterized by a constant breeze and high temperature excursion between nigh and days, that is important for the grape maturation and the wine parfums. The calcareaous-clay soil is characterized by the presence of the Spungone, a pliocenic rock with marin origins, a memory from three millions years ago, when the Adriatic sea used to arrive on our hills and the current ridges were cliffs.
To be farmers is a responsibility that everyday Condè translates in working in a respectful way the soil, the plant and the fruit like the guardians for a certain period of time. All winemaking approach is based on the idea that to the future generation should be given the better heritage possible.
Condè do not use any chemical herbicides and pesticides, only a very low amount of sulfur and copper in the vineyards. The soil is worked with organic manure and green manure, with a deep respect for the differences of the parcels: specific selections of seeds are used for the green manure so that they can help the vine roots to go deep in the soil and take the nutrition and microelements of that specific vineyard.
