Bushfire season started!


Bushfire in contrada Guardiola, close to Andrea Franchetti’s vineyards

Every year during summer we are going through the stress of possible damage of bushfires to our vineyards and olive growths.
Saturday the “bushfire season” started in contrada Guardiola. Perfect conditions for pyromaniacs with a nice wind and a very hot day resulted in a difficult to control fire which reached the pine tree forest in contrada Guardiola creating severe damage.
Every year these purposely lit fires are a huge damage, not only environmentally but especially economically in terms of bushfire prevention as well as production and permanent damage in vineyards and olive growths.
A sad and continuous struggle which hopefully one day will end.
