The Bellussera is an ancient method of vine cultivation based on a ray system. Mainly common in Veneto region, the system was invented, towards the end of XIX century, by brothers Bellussi from Tezze di Piave (TV) in an attempt to defeat downy mildew. The Bellussera consists in a structure where four meter high poles are linked by iron cables arranged in rays. Every pole supports four vines positioned at 2.50 meters from the ground. From each vine originates permanent cordons, which grow inclined upwards and diagonally to the lane, forming a system of rays.
