The Schiava is a variety still much cultivated in Cembra Valley and characterizes most of the vineyards. The classic pergola Trentina cultivation is still indispensable to the Schiava, very vigorous strain which is now controlled through proper pruning to produce a quality product. It seems that its name derives from the particular tying of the branches that seems to force the plant to support her as a slave (Italian Schiava).
