Sustainable Agriculture in Practice

Azienda Agricola Moranda: A Matter of Responsibility

In the famous area of DOC Valpolicella, Italy, the Capurso family produces wine varietals such as Valpolicella, Valpolicella Superiore and Amarone, also known as "The Great Bitter" because of the partially dried grapes that help give the wine its full body and rich flavor. The Capursos strive to uphold the renowned legacy of the Veneto region wines by implementing modern farming techniques and respecting their surroundings. On Bayer ForwardFarms like Azienda Agricola Moranda, Bayer and farmers join hands to demonstrate sustainable agriculture in practice.
