Daniele Eberle: Maestro of the Vine Symphony
If we go into the details of green operations in vineyards, which constitute a fundamental aspect underlying the quality of grapes, especially during the period of climate change, it is clear that the methods of plant management, formation of bunches are crucial. Training of the personnel in this field becomes a strategic assignment in terms of both quality of wines, and preservation of the environment in the vine-growing regions. Skilful playing on the balance between light and shadow, which depends on the variety of methods and the level of oenological education, is not for everyone. However, Daniele Eberle is a real virtuoso in this play. Among Piedmont winemakers, Maestro is a well-known consultant, agronomist, and enologist dedicated to Asti DOCG, and it should be emphasized that he rose to eminence in his educational endeavours. Daniele Eberle is an agronomist and consultant who is dedicated to the great heritage of Piedmont’s viticultural diversity.
