GIR was founded in 2018 on the initiative of scientific researcher and geologist Carlo Ferretti, with 25 years of professional experience.

He has developed new methods to classify the vineyards geographical identity. In doing so, methods are used that are today recognized on an international scientific level.

GIR Geo Identity Research is a scientific research company focused on the territory.

Our aim is to support the wine sector, getting to know their territories and vineyards better, and offering solutions for upgrading quality products.

There are natural geographical elements that can characterize the agricultural product. Our goal is to recognize in the vineyards those characteristics and the geographic peculiarities perfecting the original wine identity.

The land: the most valuable resource

Land and territory are a resource of nature, regulating the quality and value of the products derived from it.

The geographic state is one of the important precursors of biosynthetic activities that promote the productive and qualitative potential of the vine, but also the aromas and quality of the wine.

The purposes of our research are many:

A precise geographic classification of the area can promote the quality and communication of its wine.

The terroir should not be an abstract entity, and the proposed researches can provide a clear reference guide for wine producers and consumers

Provide assistance tools for the analysis of the territory aimed at the natural quality of wines and to develop best viticultural practices.

Evaluation of the wine country production.

Assessment of productive and qualitative potential of every vineyards with regard to the typical characteristics of its wine.
