Le Prese Santa Lucia di Piave
Wine-growing Bellussera, also called star shaped wine-growing, is an ancient wine-growing system, which was spread in Veneto; invented by the brothers Bellussi from Tezze di Piave (Treviso) at the end of the 19th century in order to combat the infection of Peronospora. It requires 6 wide plants, where the wooden columns are connected with a wire in a height of 4 meters. Each column supports four grapevines, which are being held 2.50 meters above the earth. These ropes are strained diagonal upwards between the rows in order to form a star.
