Project Description

Our company, Vivai Santamaria, was established during the first years of the last century starting from our grandfather Luigi, widened by our father Renato and now led by Pierpaolo, his son. Our main production is focused on rooted grafts of wine vines, table grape vines, and hazelnut trees. All developed on a land surface of 20 hectares. For what concerns the wine root grafts apart from the international varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, we have worked to recover forgotten or lost varieties: Slarina, Timorasso, Bian Ver, Barratuciat, Montanera. This was possible thanks to the collaboration with the University of Turin, the National Research Council (Dr. Schneider and Dr. Raimondi) and the regional Phytosanitary Service. In addition, we also have a wide production of table grape vines, with bare-root sand potted for two-year pots.As customers, apart from national nurseries and garden centres, we boast European and International ones. Recently, we have added the hazelnut tree to our production. Apart from the most requested and known variety, the Tonda Gentile Trilobata, we produce other varieties both bare-root and in pot and with help of university professors, technicians, and collaboration with a foreign hazelnut tree centre, we also dedicated ourselves to the production of the grafted hazelnut tree.
